If the Bridport property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A RICS Level 2 Survey in Bridport will include a professional valuation and a rebuilding cost. To work out an accurate value estimate the valuer will refer to in depth understanding of the Bridport market as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Your Bridport surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't factor in things like sales incentives.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems like the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental issues like industrial buildings, also being considered.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

There is a detached house in DT6 for £298, 554. What different issues will your Bridport chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Bridport on a RICS valuation ?

There is a near endless list of things which could affect property values e.g. the amount of ground rent or the property's proximity to a conservation area. It is useful to analyse prices registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £274, 954, which is £23, 600 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The combined house/flat average was £257, 460. 12, Osbourne Road, Bridport, West Dorset, Dorset, DT6 3AN a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £250, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Bridport may be worth checking. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the house survey?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be remedied. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a greater-than-average concentration of sand, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
