Home Buyers Survey in Countesthorpe

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Countesthorpe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Countesthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Countesthorpe property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found cracks along one external wall when we last viewed the house. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Property Surveyor reveal?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Countesthorpe should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

Many properties develop superficial cracks in a doorway, due to settlement. Inside the house, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
