RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Blaenau Ffestiniog and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Blaenau Ffestiniog property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Blaenau Ffestiniog property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Blaenau Ffestiniog. What aspects of the house's roof will be checked during the survey?

Homes in the area in good condition will suffer damage to the roof. From concrete tiles to collar beams, every part of the roof must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Blaenau Ffestiniog, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about pests - Will the RICS Level 2 Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for insect infestation may include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

RICS Level 2 Surveys include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the valuation the surveyor will should use local property market knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation. Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to Blaenau Ffestiniog environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1820s house with stone walls. Are there specific factors to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled Blaenau Ffestiniog property. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
