Home Buyers Survey in Brough

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Brough and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Brough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Brough property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a house with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? Are there any matters that need to be investigated, and what will the survey reveal?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include spalling brick.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Can a Brough House Survey investigate this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Brough house. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Brough house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Brough surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house near to Crosslands Quarry near Crosslands Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial refuse disposal. Thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in England and Wales including Brough. Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

RICS Level 2 Survey in Brough will consider structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the location of the meter at the property, in addition to gas associated installations e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Brough qualified RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and he or she won't conduct any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Gas can be fatal, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.
