Home Buyers Survey in Bucknall

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Bucknall and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bucknall property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Bucknall property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey check signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flood damage. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Do we need a surveyor?

Properties in Bucknall are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Bucknall surveyor.
