Home Buyers Survey in Bassaleg

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Bassaleg and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bassaleg property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bassaleg property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will a Bassaleg property surveyor make for property constructed with handmade bricks?

Brick-constructed buildings in Bassaleg do benefit from many advantages, but they can also be subject to a range of defects. This could be anything from cracks to lack of a damp proof course. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with directions for remedy. One serious matter is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Beat That Quote at 51 Ferniehill Rd, Edinburgh, EH17 7BL on 0131-478 5133.

One example is running, or stretcher, bond, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall)

A RICS Level 2 Survey will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To properly appraise the valuation your independent surveyor will pair local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: square metres. The valuer will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Further area conjectures, for example issues with access, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas flues?

The chartered surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the routing of any gas pipes at the home, as well as gas affiliated appliances such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Bassaleg RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any fittings and won't run any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
