RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Brynmill and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Brynmill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Brynmill property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Brynmill home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Does the Brynmill RICS Level 3 Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. A Brynmill 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.

Damaged Render

What problems will a Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Brynmill.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco render is very appealing and is was often applied to Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Brynmill RICS Level 3 Survey frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick.

Another example of problems might be when moisture beneath DPCs which causes detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Can you please explain the argument for choosing the full structural survey when looking into a shabby end of terrace house near Brynmill rather than a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Commonly still described as the Full Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is now defunct and and has been replaced by RICS and the right term is actually now the RICS Level 3 Survey.

The RICS Level 2 Survey will suffice for a non period Brynmill house of standard building materials. The RICS Level 3 Survey is the right one to choose for the house mentioned. Following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is sent to the buyer going through comprehensive and crucial insight on the construction of the home. There will be certain limitations with the survey as a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Brynmill property for example removing roof space contents.
