Home Buyers Survey in Childwall

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Childwall and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Childwall property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Childwall property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a detached house in Childwall (L18), being marketed for £224, 210. What different issues will your Childwall qualified RICS surveyor consider in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on house prices from existence of building regulations for modifications to whether the property is listed. It often helps to consider values recorded in Childwall for similar houses.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £196, 710, which is £27, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats was £193, 296. Beech Cottage, Menlove Avenue, Liverpool, Liverpool, Merseyside, L18 3EE a detached property sold for £42, 500 .

The most reliable way to get an accurate home valued is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a formal valuation by default. Your qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Is it necessary to choose a full structural survey before buying a converted period cottage near Childwall?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now called RICS Level 3 Survey. This is the most appropriate survey to choose if planning to buy an unconventional home like an older Childwall house. It specifies important insight about the property's construction and uses as well as any defects after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

A surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters for instance, in addition to gas associated installations for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). External covers however, won't be detached. The system won't be tested at all. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Substandard guttering

In a Childwall RICS Level 2 Survey what can 'E3' include?

The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. This section does not include suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Downspouts discharging onto the roof is one example. RICS created the RICS Level 2 Survey to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
