Home Buyers Survey in Hartford

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Hartford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Hartford property, RICS recommend you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hartford property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Hartford, and will the Hartford surveyor inquire into signs of water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including patio doors.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous rubbish. No one would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Hartford RICS surveyors will find any structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Hartford. What does a property surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by Hartford surveyors. Houses across Hartford could feature roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. The Hartford surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Hartford contractor for the job itself.
