Home Buyers Survey in Caversham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Caversham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Caversham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Caversham property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Caversham House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 022 4428 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a gatehouse. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a cottage. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Caversham houses built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find .

Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, . Speak to the RICS Level 3 Surveyor for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Caversham. Can a Caversham surveyor inquire into indications of flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Caversham residence is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The chartered surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
