Home Buyers Survey in Chesham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Chesham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chesham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Chesham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that damage to the parapet had been a concern. What advice would the RICS Level 3 Surveyor in Chesham give in their report?

Properties in Chesham with no other major issues can be blighted by roof maintenance problems. From the dormers to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Chesham roofing specialist for the job itself. Speak to 20 20 Builders Ltd of 1 Bayleys Hatch, South Heath, Great Missenden, HP16 9QG on 01494 862703 for an estimate.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a farmstead. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Some purchasers would like to own property with real personality. For traditionally-built Chesham property, age, however, can be problematic. Houses built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could result in higher ongoing expenses.If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail.

One example of traditional building methods is Wychert. This mixture of clay and straw is extremely rare in more modern homes. Examples of wychert building can be found in Chesham and throughout Buckinghamshire.
