About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Bournville

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Bournville and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Bournville property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Bournville property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

What should I be wary of when purchasing a maisonette in the region a rubbish landfill

Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the early 70s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create issues? Does a Bournville Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

Whether a property was built in 1709 or 2009, factors as varied as heavy rainfall or Japanese knotweed can create high maintenance costs for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Visible results may be anything from small cracks in the kitchen floor to warped window frames in the kitchen. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bournville, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
