Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Bulkington and which one would be cheaper?

If the Bulkington property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Bulkington. Can a RICS Level 3 Survey investigate signs of flooding damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. 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. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Semington Brook from upper reaches to Semington, near Bulkington, .

Stone block wall damage

Can homes constructed with stone cause issues for the buyer? What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. This is enforced by the council. Defects such as deteriorating bedding affect many stone-walled houses in Bulkington. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Bulkington are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Does the Bulkington RICS Level 2 Survey cover this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as sticking doors. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bulkington, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove it and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.
