RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Desborough and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Desborough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Desborough property, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Desborough property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Desborough. What will we need to consider when purchasing older property? What effect will the house's cladding have on maintenance?

A building's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Desborough homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

House Prices

There is a house in NN14 in Desborough on with a local agent for £156, 939. What different issues will your Desborough surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Desborough on a RICS valuation ?

There is a near endless list of things that might affect house prices e.g. the quality of nearby schools or the size of bedrooms (single/double). It often helps to compare with house values recorded in Desborough for similar properties.

The means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £152, 339, which is £4, 600 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £149, 958. Treesway, Rushton Road, Rothwell, Kettering, Kettering, Northamptonshire, NN14 6HH a detached home sold for £285, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. A qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does rainfall have on a home?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the impact wet weather can have on homes is overlooked by property buyers. If you have visited the house in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in warped floorboards or beams.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
