RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Colsterworth and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Colsterworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Colsterworth property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the Colsterworth house we plan to buy - What should we do?

Colsterworth houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for insect infestation may include destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Forest of Dean stone. Which issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Repair fees for stone-built properties can be higher than for more standard. Defects such as deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Purchasers renovating properties should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Colsterworth, you can contact local suppliers.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older cottage in Colsterworth. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Many purchasers hope to own a home with character. A property's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Colsterworth property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

I am buying a substantially modified period detached home in Colsterworth - is it necessary to order a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as the RICS Level 3 Survey. When purchasing an unconventional house - such as a neglected house, this is now the most appropriate RICS survey to purchase. A RICS Level 2 Survey is detailed enough for a mid 20th century of later Colsterworth property of standard building materials.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to the buyer specifying any notable advice concerning the construction materials used on the house.

There will be one or two restrictions with a property survey to consider because the surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Colsterworth building e.g. removing loft contents. The following article for more info survey specifics.
