Home Buyers Survey in Kirk Ella

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I get a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Kirk Ella and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kirk Ella property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kirk Ella property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Kirk Ella House Survey Quote or call us 0800 022 4428 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 18th Century coast house. What effect will the slate roof have on regular maintenance?

Some purchasers plan to buy property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can be problematic. Properties constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict. If you have doubts, speak to the surveyor for more detail.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. Which issues relating to the loft will be reported on?

This is a common concern for home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Kirk Ella can be hiding serious damage to the roof, including. From decking to roof battens, the whole roof will be taken into account. Your RICS Level 3 Surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Elloughton Roofing of 63/63/Main Street, Elloughton, Brough, HU15 1HU on 01482 667404 to request an estimate.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the RICS Level 2 Survey what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

An example defect for this is discolouration to the roof. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These are inspected by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can damp weather have on our new property? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

Both in Kirk Ella, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are rarely paid due attention. If you have only visited the home in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
