RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Hackbridge and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hackbridge property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Hackbridge property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check gutters, and does our RICS Level 3 Survey mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which heavy rainfall has on Hackbridge homes is not given enough thought. If you have investigated the house in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious. This could then result in water damage.

Whether buying in Hackbridge or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Hackbridge, what input does the surveyor give for a 30s home with English bond walls?

Brick-built conversions do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be subject to several common problems. One problem often found is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Carlton John may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 55 East La, Stainforth, Doncaster, DN7 5DY or 01302 350106.

Brick-constructed property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a range of styles and techniques. For instance, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Other external areas of the property

In a Hackbridge RICS Level 2 Survey what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

For a Hackbridge house, one issue is insect damage or rot to a conservatory roof. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

The RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Hackbridge are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Hackbridge property's construction.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Hackbridge that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a kind of smooth render. Normally it is applied to red brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is very attractive and is often found on Victorian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Hackbridge sometimes report issues such as when there is movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other potential problems might result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-coating problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.
