Home Buyers Survey in Brown Edge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Brown Edge and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Brown Edge property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Brown Edge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be an infestation at the Brown Edge property we're buying, but we are not certain. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Brown Edge building may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to insect infestation can include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with thrips, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Brown Edge - What aspects of the roof of the house will be considered?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS Level 3 Surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can often hide problems like bowing beams. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder for the job itself.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we are intending to acquire, the agent said that there is an unsafe electrical system; will a surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Brown Edge Home Survey a surveyor should usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. A Home surveyor should also things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak supply. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.
