Home Buyers Survey in Bracebridge Heath

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 Bracebridge Heath and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Bracebridge Heath property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Bracebridge Heath property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard.

All forms including white are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Bracebridge Heath Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Bracebridge Heath home survey. However they will report on potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the justification for having the full structural survey if buying a un-loved semi detached house near Bracebridge Heath instead of a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Albeit they are often called Full Structural Surveys by many these technical property surveys are now named RICS Level 3 Survey RICS would recommend that you go for the RICS Level 3 Survey for the house referred to. A RICS Level 2 Survey is enough for a 60 year old or less Bracebridge Heath home built out of typical building materials.

Bear in mind that some limitations exist with any residential survey because a surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the building for example, or look into the internal condition of chimneys.
