Home Buyers Survey in Chorlton

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

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

If the Chorlton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Chorlton property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of cracks along one external wall when we last viewed the house. Is this a major danger, and what subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be resolved quite easily. In some older structures cracks are noticeable in Summer which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials absorb moisture. These cracks are usually completely harmless.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand, gravel or chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. In serious environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Chimney stacks

On a Chorlton RICS Level 2 Survey what does 'E1' refer to?

An example of this is a chimney which is noticeably leaning. These elements should be examined if the roof is difficult to access.

The RICS Level 2 Survey is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have.

House Prices

There is a property in Chorlton. What factors will qualified surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Chorlton ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on house prices e.g. the amount of ground rent payable or the number and size of bedrooms at the home. .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a RICS Level 2 Survey in Chorlton which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
