RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Edgbaston and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Edgbaston property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the property, it would be better that you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Edgbaston property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

When I was shown the mid-century home I am planning to move into it appeared that there is old wiring - does a Edgbaston RICS Level 2 Survey give details on on the wiring and fusebox?

This should include a general check of exposed areas of the wiring in addition to concerns such as where to find the fuse board .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Edgbaston Property Survey consider this?

Factors from wet rot to insect infestation can cause difficulties for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a range of issues, with moisture changes in the soil and swelling of the soil being relatively common. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
