Home Buyers Survey in Chessington

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Chessington property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chessington property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the RICS Level 2 Survey what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Roof coverings are inspected by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. A torn or punctured asphalt roof is one defect applicable to this section. The RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the RICS Level 2 Survey, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
