About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Barmouth

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Barmouth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barmouth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Barmouth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Barmouth, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the RICS surveyor look for?

Barmouth houses in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to damage to the roof. From eaves to collar ties, the whole roof will be taken into account. The Barmouth surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we are interested to acquire, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a the Barmouth surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

During a Barmouth RICS Level 3 Survey a qualified surveyor should usually report on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory condition.

This should include a visual examination of the accessible parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas e.g. verifying the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Barmouth.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there is a concern of asbestos sprayed on coatings concealed in the flat. What is asbestos and does the Barmouth RICS Level 2 Survey go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb it and expert advice should be sought immediately. On no account attempt to disturb it yourself. Barmouth Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. However they will report on potential asbestos during the Barmouth survey and will recommend relevant tests.
