Home Buyers Survey in Barnoldswick

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Barnoldswick and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Barnoldswick property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Barnoldswick property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Barnoldswick RICS Level 2 Survey, what might 'E8' cover?

The RICS Level 2 Survey is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers in Barnoldswick deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any buyers in Barnoldswick. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be investigated. Flashing or joint defects, for example, is included in Section E.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a property surveyor look for?

This is a common concern for Barnoldswick buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes can often hide roofing problems, such as. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder from the area a quote for any suggested work.
