Home Buyers Survey in Boroughbridge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Boroughbridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Boroughbridge property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Boroughbridge property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Boroughbridge? Does the Boroughbridge RICS Level 2 Survey cover this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to investigate rainwater goods? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is ignored by property buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is rusted iron elements. This can lead to damage to foundations.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
