Home Buyers Survey in Catterick Garrison

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Catterick Garrison and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Catterick Garrison property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Catterick Garrison property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could heavy rain have on our new Catterick Garrison property? Also, if there is a problem, will they be a hassle to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rain has on Catterick Garrison homes is ignored by purchasers. As an example, spalling on walls around drainage suggest that the downspouts are blocked. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a property I am meaning to move into I noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does the surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Catterick Garrison Home Survey a surveyor will usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. This will include a general check of the open areas of the wiring on top of concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances e.g. water heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will be part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Catterick Garrison.

The IEE recommend a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there may be loose blue asbestos soffit boards being found in the building. What is asbestos and will the RICS Level 2 Survey cover this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including cement sheet.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful however, never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos during a Catterick Garrison RICS Level 3 Survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the current owner has stated that it has been constructed with Forest of Dean stone. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Orton Scar Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Do all Catterick Garrison surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

The RICS Level 2 Survey includes an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To fully consider the market value the valuer will refer to in depth understanding of the Catterick Garrison market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will draw upon other assumptions such as no significant problems. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings.

Additional local Catterick Garrison area assumptions, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made as well as any significant Catterick Garrison environmental concerns like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
