Home Buyers Survey in Blaby

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Blaby and which is cheaper?

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

If the Blaby property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blaby property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a converted barn. Will the building's age be a concern?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Property featuring traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchanging.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Blaby, and can a Blaby house surveyor consider indications of water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property in Blaby will be secure against water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and home buyers in Blaby are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the RICS Level 2 Survey. The chartered surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian house in Blaby.

Stucco is just smooth type of solid render. Usually it is applied to red brick that dries to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Blaby RICS Level 3 Survey frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal visible cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath. Other issues might be when dampness below flashings that results in the render detaching. Fixing Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
