RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Dorridge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Dorridge property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the Dorridge property, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Dorridge property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled residential property. Which potential issues should we consider?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Peakmoor Sandstone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create issues for Dorridge home? Will the Dorridge House Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Dorridge surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
