RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Crayford and which would be the cheapest?

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 Crayford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Crayford property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

For a RICS Level 2 Survey on a Crayford house or flat, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects for chimney stacks?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Crayford house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. Section E elements are reviewed visually from ground level if the roof is difficult to access. A sloping chimney cap is an example of a Section E defect.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Crayford Home Survey to mention this?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for house owners. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen or minor wall cracks in the kitchen can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like checking that the downpipe drains correctly can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
