RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cherry Willingham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Cherry Willingham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Cherry Willingham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor suggested subsidence is a problem. What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be resolved on a reasonable budget.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should rainfall have on a house? Could it affect the property value?

Both in Cherry Willingham, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rainfall can have on a home is not considered. For example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage suggest that the downspouts are blocked. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

The good news is that issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, what are the risks and does the RICS Level 3 Survey in Cherry Willingham report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP. On no account attempt to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. They will note the risk of asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor advise on the state of the gas flues?

The surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas associated installations, for instance fireplaces. Your Cherry Willingham qualified surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
