RICS Level 2 Survey

If the Cradley Heath property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property in Cradley Heath we plan to buy. Is a RICS Level 2 Survey advisable?

Cradley Heath properties are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to vermin can include professional cleaning or destruction of tainted materials.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Cradley Heath, what input does a Cradley Heath surveyor give for a property with English bond walls? Does render make a difference?

Brick flats show signs of several common problems, such as crumbling mortar. One problem often found is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. For more information, contact a local builder, Killitoon of 12 Johns Walk, Whyteleafe, CR3 0BT on 07973 151310.

One example is English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.
