RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in Dursley and which is cheaper?

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

If the Dursley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

Gas flame

Will a Dursley surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This means things like the condition of the meter where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). The Dursley chartered surveyor won't remove gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does the Dursley RICS Level 3 Survey cover this?

Factors from damp to acid rain can cause high maintenance costs for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the drawing room floor, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new building in Dursley, and does our RICS surveyor mention it? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which rainfall has on homes in Dursley is not given more thought. For example, water pooling below gutters indicate that the drainage are worth a closer look. Fortunately, drainage problems are quite easy to resolve.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

English Heritage

I am purchasing a property near Folly Wood Long Barrow , will this affect the property's value?

Folly Wood Long Barrow is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly increase the desirability of an area. Examples of other nearby sites of interest are Rowden Wood Long Barrow, Uley Bury Camp and West Hill Romano-Celtic Temple.. The RICS surveyor will include many local and regional criteria when conducting home buyers survey in Dursley. Refer to the English Heritage website for further information on Folly Wood Long Barrow.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we should check on if purchasing an extended house in Dursley near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have on the building. The price of property is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to conservation areas retaining original features. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors will report if the planned purchase might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Dursley RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
