RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Barking and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Barking property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Barking property, it would be better that you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Barking property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Property purchasers in Barking should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent mentioned that the had been issues with bowing. What should we do about roof repairs?

Local property in good condition can be blighted by issues with the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as valley gutters, ought to be checked. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Barking, and does our Barking property surveyor mention it? Also, if there are issues, will they be costly to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on homes are not given the attention it deserves. If you have only seen the house in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage. This can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Fortunately, this is usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
