Home Buyers Survey in Blackley

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Blackley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Blackley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Blackley property's condition as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Blackley which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to an even finish. The finish is very attractive and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. It is very like plaster and mortar. it can be prone to defect and Blackley Home Buyers Suveys commonly show potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your RICS surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't be taken off. Of course, gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does the Blackley home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

The RICS Level 2 Survey includes an impartial valuation and a cost of reinstatement. In order to determine the market value your RICS valuer will use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Blackley surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Blackley conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a house close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous refuse. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include structurally instability .

Surveyors in Blackley will note structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database and Manchester Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
