RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Carshalton On The Hill and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Carshalton On The Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Carshalton On The Hill property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home in Carshalton On The Hill and the current owner has stated that it has been built with stone. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses in Carshalton On The Hill, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder has said subsidence might be a problem. What subsidence issues will the RICS Level 3 Survey inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be remedied. In some older buildings cracks are revealed in warmer weather[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

Soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting flat and could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
