RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Harton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Harton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it will give a thorough analysis of the Harton property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I want to purchase I think we saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does a surveyor report on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Harton your RICS surveyor should report on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A professional surveyor will also provide detail on issues like reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the building should usually be part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Harton.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting out). For expert nearby advice in Harton on electrical systems - Hall David , 4 Harbour View, Sunderland, SR6 0NL .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Harton include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The RICS Level 2 Survey includes an independent valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will use local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will use key assumptions e.g. there are no damaging materials. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Harton environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that poor insulation had been a concern, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Harton homebuyers. Homes throughout Harton could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems, such as bad drainage. From the fascias to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor in Harton with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.
