About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Canvey Island

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Canvey Island and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Canvey Island property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Canvey Island property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are planning to acquire it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. Does a RICS Level 2 Survey in Canvey Island go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Canvey Island the RICS surveyor will usually comment on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. He or she should also report back on possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of visible wiring. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property will usually form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Canvey Island. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey in Canvey Island .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to be conscious of when purchasing a period property in Canvey Island near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation they have on the home and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, higher owing to them being largely unspoilt However many areas have fallen into poor condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected report if the property might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Canvey Island RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the building will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

House Prices

There is a property in the centre of SS8 on for £140, 650. What different issues will your RICS surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Canvey Island ?
