Home Buyers Survey in Maryland

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Maryland and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Maryland property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Maryland property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would need to look out for if buying an extended house in Maryland in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Maryland need to possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation may have with the home. Values tends to be enhanced which is down to them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors are trained to report whether the property looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Maryland RICS Level 2 Survey will recommend suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unapproved changes to the building should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence might be worth checking impacting the flat. Is this a severe danger, and what subsidence issues will the home survey consider?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new structure within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground and can sometimes become unstable and start to slip downhill. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Maryland surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Maryland house. Are there specific issues to consider, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties. Problems which impact stone-built properties can vary greatly, with issues like efflorescence being quote common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Maintenance tips include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Maryland should be able to supply local stone.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a home close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include structurally instability .

Surveyors in Maryland will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Waltham Forest Local Authority and advise you .
