Home Buyers Survey in Cookham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Cookham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cookham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Cookham property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Some types may be in building materials including painted over ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good fire retarding properties, it may be found in lagging.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest further investigation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does the Cookham Property Survey cover this?

There are more than a handful of issues associated with clay soil. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Isolated patches of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
