Home Buyers Survey in Axbridge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Axbridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Axbridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Axbridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would be advised to check on if intending to buy an extended house in Axbridge in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Axbridge are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the building and its value. Values is usually higher which is down to conservation areas being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is or might be so designated and Section I of the Axbridge RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Conservatory

In the RICS Level 2 Survey what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

For a Axbridge residential property, one issue is a stair run that is too short or steep. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report.

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but maintenance may still be necessary. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a Axbridge house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a conversion built Clipsham stone. What should we be particularly aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings in Axbridge. Defects affecting stone-built buildings in Axbridge can vary, deteriorating bedding being relatively common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Callow Rock Quarry, Shipham Gorge, Cheddar, Somerset, BS27 3DQ, which quarries Limestone, for details. Call 01934 742621 for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a home near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include heavy metals. Health problems like congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Axbridge will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Sedgemoor Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
