About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Framlingham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Framlingham and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Framlingham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Framlingham property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor look into the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas associated gas installations in the house e.g. balanced flues. Any external fittings won't actually be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Framlingham generate lots of maintenance costs for buyers? What problems should we be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings in Framlingham. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this home is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor inquire into flooding damage?

Burst dams, tidal activity and inadequate drainage could all cause major floods. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a Framlingham house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The house surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The alert level for the River Ore from, and including, Framlingham to Blaxhall, near to Framlingham , was recently set by the Environment Agency at 11:39 on 10/09/09.
