Home Buyers Survey in Emsworth

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Emsworth and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Emsworth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Emsworth property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could heavy rainfall have on a home? Will the RICS Level 3 Survey report on this? If there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact heavy rainfall can have on property in Emsworth is usually overlooked by buyers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage indicate that the drainage systems are blocked. The good news is that issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to remedy, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Emsworth subsidence has been an issue. What subsidence issues will the property survey review?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be resolved. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new home within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground and may become unstable and slip down the incline. On the inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in a house we used to own, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the attic be hard to organise?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers. Homes throughout Emsworth can be blighted by incorrectly applied waterproofing, among a range of other roofing issues. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the ceiling joists. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of wholesale replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A builder in Emsworth with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.
