Home Buyers Survey in Becontree

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Becontree and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Becontree property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Becontree property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Becontree, what suggestions can a surveyor in Becontree make for buildings with Dutch bond brick?

Brick-walled Becontree converted property can indicate both minor and serious issues, ranging from vertical cracking to frost damage. For example, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and may require immediate attention. S Shaw at 21A Bondend Rd, Upton St. Leonards, Gloucester, GL4 8AH should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01452 550224.

For home purchasers in Becontree seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Surveyor examine on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Becontree that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a type of render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors frequently highlight defects for example, lateral pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems could be when moisture below DPCs that causes the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Remedying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.
