About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Mere

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Mere and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Mere property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Mere property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Mere, and think we saw signs of pests in the hall. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Mere properties are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for insect infestation may include use of poison. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller warned us that access to the roofing could be problematic - What will our chartered surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property could feature missing tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. From roof battens to fascias, the whole roof will be taken into account. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

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. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

Your will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, in addition to gas associated fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. External fittings or covers will not however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested at all. Gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

I want to purchase a property in SP8 for an asking price of £214, 767. What different issues will your surveyor take into account when carrying out a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from property values ranging from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against house values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £220, 567, which is £5, 800 more than the asking price. The combined house/flat average was £213, 052. 2, Swallowfields, Gillingham, North Dorset, Dorset, SP8 4US a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £330, 000 .

The best way for you to get a professional property valuation is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey in Mere which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to be wary of when intending to buy a house in Mere near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Mere must possess knowledge of local considerations and any connection they have on the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be inflated which is down to conservation areas resisting change.

RICS surveyors are expected advise you whether the property is/might be is designated and Section I of your RICS Level 2 Survey will advise the proper questions are raised by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Brodrick-Barker & Co are a local firm situated at Caerglow House, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SP3 6JP will be happy to advise further. Tel: 01747 871 600

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Mere. What advice would a Mere property surveyor give?

Brick-built Mere properties demonstrate several benefits compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be subject to both minor and serious issues.

A defect often found is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Guest & Fiore Contract Bricklayers Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Unit 1 Lanes Farm/Marlborough Rd, Wootton Bassett, Swindon, SN4 7SA or 01793 851551.

A range of techniques of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider renegotiating the price of the Mere property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
