Home Buyers Survey in Bulwell

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bulwell and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Bulwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Bulwell property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Bulwell property? Will my Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. 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, such as warped window frames in the kitchen. A Bulwell surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Bulwell and are looking for properties built from brick. What input does a property surveyor in Bulwell give?

Brick-built Bulwell apartments feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to diverse problems, from weathering to signs of movement. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with feedback. An issue of particular concern is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Brick & Block Solutions should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 23 Elventon Close, Folkestone, CT19 4NJ or 01303 271417.

Brick-constructed property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a great deal of variety. For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when purchasing an older property? Will the property's age be an issue?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. For houses in Bulwell built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Properties built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.
