Home Buyers Survey in Charlton

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Charlton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Charlton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Charlton property's condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause problems for owners? Which defects should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Victoria Deep Water Terminal, 238 Tunnel Avenue, Blackwall Tunnel, London, SE10 0QE for details.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, get in touch with a local mason or walling contractor. Allflames of 79 Armstrong Rise, Charlton, Andover, SP10 4EB, for example, could assist.

Defective door frame

On a Charlton RICS Level 2 Survey what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

All doors leading outside are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Generally, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. Blocked drainage holes, for example, is included in Section E. The format of the RICS Level 2 Survey is clear and easy to read. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered regency home in Charlton that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a smooth and flat render. Normally it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a very smooth surface. The coating is very attractive and is often found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Charlton can show potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal visible cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might be when water beneath DPCs which causes detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
