Home Buyers Survey in Burton upon Stather

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Burton upon Stather and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Burton upon Stather property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I want to acquire, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will the surveyor write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Burton upon Stather a RICS surveyor should usually comment on the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A professional surveyor should also focus on potential areas for concern such as ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Burton upon Stather. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise that a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Burton upon Stather. Is there a flood risk, and will the surveyor check any flooding?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can all result in extensive floods, and owning a residential property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. In addition, the RICS Level 3 Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences. The RICS Level 3 Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Burton upon Stather Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Burton upon Stather.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very beautiful and is common on some Regency properties for example. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Burton upon Stather can show defects which can include trapped moisture leading to damp problems. Other potential problems might involve attack from sulphates derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-covering problems can be dear as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
