Home Buyers Survey in Bideford

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Bideford and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bideford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bideford property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. You should never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Bideford RICS Level 3 Survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.
