Home Buyers Survey in Bracknell

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bracknell and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Bracknell property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bracknell property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Bracknell. What will we need to think about when buying a house built in around 1740? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

A building's age can concern buyers. Properties built with traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Bracknell house built in the mid 30s, but it has clay foundations. Can your Home Survey consider this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Issues range from uneven soil compaction to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned that there could be asbestos cement sheets at the building. What is asbestos and can it be remedied?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sealant. Technically all forms (including white) are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay. You should not endeavour to remove it yourself. Bracknell Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
