Home Buyers Survey in Bexhill

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bexhill and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bexhill property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bexhill property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Bexhill, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can your Property Survey investigate this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Bexhill house, with subsidence being a common example. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Signs like sticking window frames or cracks along the lounge floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is an asbestos tank situated in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example acoustic tiles.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings for example. Technically all forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a one fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Removing it asbestos will be expensive but absolutely must be carried out by trained experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Is it best to spend a bit more on full structural survey before investing in a neglected thirties home in Bexhill?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now named RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 2 Survey is detailed enough for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Bexhill house built out of conventional construction materials and methods. The RICS Level 3 Survey is certainly the most advisable choice for the property mentioned. Shortly after an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a formal report is sent to the client detailing thorough and serious details about the standard of construction and repair of the home. There are certain limitations with the survey to be aware of insofar as your surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Bexhill building e.g. undoing electrical fittings.
