RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in Earls Barton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Earls Barton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Earls Barton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including water tanks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will offer advice.

Substandard guttering

On the RICS Level 2 Survey, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

The format of the RICS Level 2 Survey is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the impact on the property individual defects may have. They are visually inspected. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Downspouts discharging onto the ground is an example of this.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance advice for the Earls Barton house we're purchasing?

Brick-constructed apartments demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also suffer from various issues and defects. One particularly serious issue is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Burns Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0161-317 0467 or Wilbraham Rd, Manchester, M14 7EN.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Consider renegotiating the price of the Earls Barton property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
