About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Chase Side

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Chase Side and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Chase Side property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Chase Side property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Chase Side. Is there a flood risk, and will the house surveyor inquire into any flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Chase Side house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the RICS Level 2 Survey. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Chase Side.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a barn conversion. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can often be problematic, and Chase Side homes featuring traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with the Chase Side surveyor for more detail.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should high levels of rainfall have on a building in Chase Side?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet conditions has on a house is rarely paid due attention. If you have only seen the residence on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are damaged include corroded downspouts. This can lead to penetrating damp.

Whether buying in Chase Side or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
