RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in Irchester and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Irchester property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Irchester property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Irchester that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly it is layered over underlying brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The finish is very attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently highlight defects e.g. horizontal cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems might be when moisture beneath DPCs which causes detachment. Fixing Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. Are there any factors that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Poorly pointed or installed window frames can often cause problems for properties in Irchester with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Irchester can vary, stone faces being relatively common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Irchester are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Purchasers renovating properties in Irchester should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Irchester, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Bozeat Quarry, Church Farm, Bozeat, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN29 7UN, which quarries Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01933 665064 for more information.
