About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Consett

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Consett and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Consett property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Consett property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a cottage with Ham Hill stone walls. What should we look in to?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Beer Limestone to Stoke Hall Sandstone. Issues including staining affect many stone-walled Consett homes. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

House Prices

I am going to purchase a property in DH8 for £111, 700. What different issues will your Consett RICS surveyor consider in the process of a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect the price of property ranging from view to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It is useful to put side by side the prices of flat recorded in the same area for comparable properties. The average flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £104, 800, which is £6, 900 less than the price you are intending to pay (£127, 189 was the blended house/flat average). 2, St Aidans Apartments, Consett, County Durham, County Durham, DH8 5SW a leasehold flat recently sold for £126, 500 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a RICS Level 2 Survey (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation by default.

A professional RICS surveyor will always go to the home as well as allowing for the large variety of location variables that might affect property values.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will rain have on our new house in Consett, and does our RICS Level 3 Survey mention it? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Both in Consett, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which heavy rainfall has on houses in Consett is usually overlooked by buyers. For example, damp stains around drainage will likely suggest that the downspouts are damaged, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Consett or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
