RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Groby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Groby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Groby property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco home in Groby.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The finish is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian houses. It is similar to plaster or mortar in its nature. it can be prone to defect and Groby RICS Level 2 Surveys frequently detail defects e.g. when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can a Groby surveyor offer for buildings built from Flemish bond walls?

Brick-constructed flats feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate distinct issues, from crypto-florescence to sulphate expansion. The RICS surveyor would usually include these. A serious concern is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Spratt Bernie should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 5 Cobden Cres, Southampton, SO18 4EX or 023 8055 8456.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with blocked valley gutters - What advice would the Groby RICS Level 3 Surveyor give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of Groby surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as ponding. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the clay tiles to the parapet walls. Your Groby surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A builder with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Groby building but are worried about pests. Should we get a surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for insect infestation may include chemical treatment. If you believe mites, or any pest, may be present, request that your Groby surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
