Home Buyers Survey in Eltham

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

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

If the Eltham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the Eltham property, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Eltham property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a RICS Level 2 Survey carried out in Eltham, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Eltham home. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give purchasers a clear understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. One example issue could be a missing step up into a house. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. The type and condition of these parts will also be mentioned in the report.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Should I get a full structural survey when investing in a substantially modified period cottage in Eltham as an alternative to a RICS Level 2 Survey?

They are often, and incorrectly, called the Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, it is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been renamed by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the right term is now the RICS Level 3 Survey. When contemplating the buying of a modified Eltham property e.g. a tatty house, this is now the right survey to choose. It will typically give comprehensive and crucial professional advice on the homes construction along with any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of the accessible areas.

. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will, in addition, be looked at by the surveyor.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are interested to move into, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a the surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Home Survey in Eltham your RICS surveyor will report on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This should include a visual inspection of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like examining the category of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Eltham.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection Report be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting out).
