Home Buyers Survey in Beckenham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Beckenham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Beckenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Beckenham property's state of repair along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are hoping to purchase We noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board - will a Beckenham RICS Level 2 Survey write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Beckenham RICS Level 2 Survey your RICS surveyor should mention the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Home surveyor should also focus on potential areas for concern such as confirming the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Beckenham.

The IEE strongly advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. 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.
