Home Buyers Survey in Deal

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Deal and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Deal property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Deal property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Deal include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Deal property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost. To work out the market value your surveyor will call upon local Deal market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate materials used and make certain other assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Deal assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like Deal planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Deal. What will we need to bear in mind when buying an older property? What should be budgeted for upkeep?

A property's age can be problematic, and Buildings built using traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems? I am buying a house in Deal. Will a House Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners, with soil compaction or compression and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the lounge, to complete structural failure. Steps like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
