RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a house in Burslem and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Burslem property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Burslem property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor check out the safety of the gas heaters?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. prefabricated flues. Fittings will not be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Burslem based gas engineers include Steve Findler Gas Services of Welwyn, Birchenwood Road, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire Tel. 07798894485 and The Heat People of 4, Heakley Avenue, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire Tel. 07792 524888.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a RICS Level 2 Survey carried out in Burslem what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Burslem house or flat, one example could be mastic on an EPDM roof. Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report.

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Edwardian terrace has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences? Does brick decay faster in Burslem weather?

Burslem brick-walled property can suffer from distinct issues, such as cracks. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. J & S Brickwork at 18 Morrell Rd, Manchester, M22 4WH on 0161-613 9897.

For example, running, or stretcher, bond.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be asbestos boards around radiators concealed in the house. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the RICS Level 2 Survey in Burslem go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials for example toilet cistern. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Burslem home survey. They will mention possible asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.
