Home Buyers Survey in Markfield

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Markfield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Markfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Markfield property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Markfield building with a loft conversion. Which issues relating to the attic will be reported on?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer problems like poor insulation. From parapet walls to purlins, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Markfield, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the bedrooms. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Markfield building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Signs may not be obvious. For example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Markfield. Can a RICS Level 2 Survey investigate possible flooding?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a Markfield property will be secure against floods, and owning a Markfield property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Markfield property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Markfield house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the agent if the Markfield house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
