Home Buyers Survey in Bradwell

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a property in Bradwell and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bradwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Bradwell property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For a RICS Level 2 Survey on a Bradwell property, can you give examples of Condition rating 3 defects affecting outside doors?

The format of the RICS Level 2 Survey is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Bradwell are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Bradwell home.

For a Bradwell property, one issue is a rotted, damp wooden door frame. External doors are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the building I intend to move into, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will the surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When preparing a RICS Level 3 Survey in Bradwell the surveyor will add detail on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that they are in an unsatisfactory condition. A Chartered surveyor is trained to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as making sure that supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Bradwell .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a periodic test is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would be advised to on guard for when purchasing a property in Bradwell in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Bradwell surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have with the building. Property values will be more than prices outside the area due to them retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will report if the property might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Bradwell RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Bradwell survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick on this property in Bradwell is in poor condition - what should we do?

Bradwell brick-walled flats can be subject to distinct issues. An especially severe issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
