About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Coney Hall

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Coney Hall and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Coney Hall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the Coney Hall property, it would be better that you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Coney Hall property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Coney Hall House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 022 4428 to speak to one of our advisers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Stretcher bond guidelines for upkeep for the Edwardian terrace we're going to buy?

Brick-walled Coney Hall flats can indicate diverse problems, from moisture damage to badly applied render. A problem regularly identified is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Ebsworth Brickwork Services should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01277 849636 or Po Box 9609, Brentwood, CM14 9DB.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Coney Hall property will include an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To work out the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account awareness of the Coney Hall property market and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture Your Coney Hall surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any expensive legal issues e.g. consents for works having been granted. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to Coney Hall environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to purchase in Coney Hall. Is there a flood risk, and will the RICS Level 3 Survey look for indications of flooding damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

No flood alerts were announced for Coney Hall, according to the Environment Agency.

However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - out of keeping extensions
