Home Buyers Survey in Chigwell

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Chigwell and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Chigwell property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Chigwell property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about insects on the street. How do we investigate further?

Chigwell purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for pests may include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with woodworm, or any pest, speak to your property surveyor

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Chigwell include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Chigwell property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will make certain other assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.
