About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cheetham Hill

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Cheetham Hill and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Cheetham Hill property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works on the Cheetham Hill property, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Cheetham Hill property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Cheetham Hill property built on clay soil can experience problems. Does a RICS Level 2 Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

There are several concerns associated with clay soil, with subsidence being a common example. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Cheetham Hill surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Cheetham Hill built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for the buyer? Which major issues should we consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. 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. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Repair advice often includes monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
