Home Buyers Survey in Bovey Tracey

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Bovey Tracey and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bovey Tracey property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Bovey Tracey property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Bovey Tracey House Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Bovey Tracey property will have an impact. In Bovey Tracey's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Visible results may be anything from cracked plaster to a sticking door in the kitchen.

Taking precautions, such as monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Bovey Tracey residential surveyor inquire into flooding?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property will be secure against water damage caused by flooding. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the RICS Level 3 Surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.
