Home Buyers Survey in Kew

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Kew and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Kew property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kew property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Kew homes built on clay soil can experience problems. What should we expect a Kew House Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil can create several issues for property owners. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like sticking doors or cracked plaster can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Kew, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Kew property built Darley Dale stone. Which major potential issues should we consider?

Buyers of a listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. This is enforced by the council. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Kew can vary, algae being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes replacing missing or badly worn stones.
