About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Crofton

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crofton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Crofton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Crofton property, it would be better that you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Crofton property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. textured coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in water tanks. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Crofton home survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency house in Crofton.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to underlying red brick hardens to an even finish. Stucco is highly appealing and is was often applied to Regency homes for example. Stucco is often problematic and Crofton Home Buyers Suveys commonly reveal issues for example, dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted).

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when water gets in beneath DPCs which results in large areas of detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems may be dear as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the house we are hoping to purchase, it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When conducting a Crofton RICS Level 2 Survey your RICS surveyor should report on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. Your surveyor is required to potential areas for concern such as the mains supply. Reporting on any documents from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Crofton.
