Home Buyers Survey in Chipstead

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Chipstead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chipstead property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Chipstead property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Is it worth paying more money for a full structural survey when considering thirties property in Chipstead?

Full Structural Surveys do not exist now and the RICS Level 3 Survey has now superseded it. If planning to buy an altered house - such as an unloved house in Chipstead, this is the most suitable choice of home survey to get. A RICS Level 2 Survey is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified Chipstead home assembled from typical construction materials. Two to three days after the surveyor has carried out a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to the prospective buyer going through any important advice concerning the condition of the house. There are certain limitations with a property survey to bear in mind as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Chipstead property e.g. lifting up fitted carpets. See the survey differences article for a simple guide on what is and is not included.
