Home Buyers Survey in Clun

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Clun and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Clun property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Clun property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Clun property constructed Darley Dale stone. What factors must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Stoke Hall Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. P Wrigley, Delbury Hall, Diddlebury, Craven Arms, Shropshire, SY7 9DH, which quarries Limestone, for details. Call 01584 841267 for more information.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Clun.

Stucco is actually just dense render. Commonly it is applied to underlying red brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The coating is very appealing and is was often applied to Regency homes. it can be prone to defect and Clun surveyors frequently highlight defects for example, horizontal hairline cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water below windows that results in detachment. Re-applying problems can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a house in Clun? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on Clun homes is overlooked. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that drainage are damaged include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to be aware of when planning to buy an extended house in Clun in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect may have on the property and its value. Property values is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them being unspoilt. However many have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are expected tell you whether the property is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of a RICS Level 2 Survey will advise suitable questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building will also be advised, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Clun residential property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will the RICS Level 2 Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Clun can have unwanted consequences. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as small cracks in the bathroom wall. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
