Home Buyers Survey in Chingford

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Chingford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Chingford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Chingford property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s house with stone walls. Are there specific issues to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Grey Dunhouse Sandstone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a home near to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health problems for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Chingford RICS surveyors will note structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database and Waltham Forest Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Chingford. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey investigate flooding, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source:, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

No recent flood warnings were made for Chingford, according to the Environment Agency.
