Home Buyers Survey in Havering

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Havering and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Havering property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Havering property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a Havering surveyor check the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter for example, as well as gas related fittings like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. External covers will not however be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should you have any worries about gas at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the roofing could be problematic - What does the surveyor in Havering pay attention to during the survey?

Havering properties with no other major issues can still be subject to difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. From ceiling joists to sheathing, the whole roof should be investigated. 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.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local contractor with professional accreditation can provide a quote. Contact Aplex Roofing Solutions Ltd of 110 Main Rd, Romford, RM2 5JB on 01708 744116 to request an estimate.

Defective door frame

In a Havering RICS Level 2 Survey, what could a Condition Rating 1 mean for outside doors?

The format of the RICS Level 2 Survey is clear and easy to read. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. All doors leading outside are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. A rusting metal door frame, for example, would be reported here.
