Home Buyers Survey in Benfleet

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a house in Benfleet and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Benfleet property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Benfleet property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Benfleet.

Stucco is in fact a type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to red brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Georgian properties. It is almost exactly the same as mortar in its nature. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Benfleet frequently discover issues such as when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems can be costly as renderers are becoming harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Benfleet. Is there any Flemish Stretcher bond maintenance tips we should be aware of?? What impact do Benfleet environmental conditions have?

Brick-walled Benfleet flats can be affected by diverse problems. The RICS surveyor would usually include these, with feedback. A defect requiring immediate attention is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Frood N J at 46 Emma Pl, Plymouth, PL1 3QT on 07973 334467.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
