About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Braunstone

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Braunstone and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Braunstone property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Braunstone property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property. What impact will the home's structure have on repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A RICS Level 2 Survey will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To be able to determine the value of the property the valuer will combine area knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. square metres The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems like building regulations having been complied. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further Braunstone assumptions like services, are made in addition to local environmental issues like local industry, also being considered.

House Prices

There is a detached house in the centre of LE3 with an asking price of £154, 787. What things will a local surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Braunstone ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect the price of property such as the number of bedrooms or whether there is a flying freehold. It may help to weigh up prices against prices achieved in Braunstone at the same time for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £148, 387, which is £6, 400 less than the asking price. 11, Plough Close, Leicester Forest East, Leicester, Blaby, Leicestershire, LE3 3QR a detached house sold for £235, 000 .

The only way to get an independent house valuation is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part.

A qualified RICS surveyor will visit the property in addition to allowing for the long list of area issues that can impact on property values.
