Home Buyers Survey in Duston

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Duston and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Duston property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works on the Duston property, it would be better that you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Duston property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco regency house in Duston that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really dense render. Commonly stucco render is layered over underlying brick to form a smooth and even finish. It is highly appealing and is/was often found on Regency properties. It may contain lime in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors commonly report defects which can include trapped water leading to problems with damp needing repair. Other issues could include sulphate attack from sulphates absorbed from brickwork. Fixing Stucco problems may be dear as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that damp from the leaking roof had been a concern. What does the Duston house surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This often causes anxiety for home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Duston can still be subject to roofing problems, such as. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the decking to the ceiling joists. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Speak to J M C Roofing & Cladding of 24 The Vale, Northampton, NN1 4ST on 07951 642520 for an estimate.
