Home Buyers Survey in Dunstable

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Dunstable and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Dunstable property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Dunstable property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to on guard for if planning to buy a property in Dunstable inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local authorities. Surveyors in Dunstable must possess local knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the property. The price of property tends to be significantly higher which is down to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are trained to report whether the building looks to be is so classified and Section I of a Dunstable RICS Level 2 Survey will recommend further enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented developments to the building should be advised but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems? I am buying a property in Dunstable. Can we expect the Dunstable Property Survey to mention this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Dunstable can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include soil swelling. In Dunstable's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself., such as a difficult-to-open kitchen window. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Dunstable, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. On no account endeavour to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.
