RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Budleigh Salterton and which one would be the cheapest?

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 Budleigh Salterton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Budleigh Salterton property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor check out the condition of the gas flues?

Any gas fittings will not however be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Budleigh Salterton - What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Budleigh Salterton. Houses across Budleigh Salterton can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheathing. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used.

Stone block wall damage

Can stone-built houses be hard to maintain. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Mountcharles Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. There are two kinds of lime-based mortar, hydraulic and non-hydraulic. It essential that the type of mortar be identified before any work be attempted. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
