Home Buyers Survey in Middleton St George

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Middleton St George and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Middleton St George property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Middleton St George property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial waste disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Stockton-on-Tees Local Authority and advise you .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Middleton St George builder mentioned subsidence might be a problem. Is this a severe danger, and what subsidence-related defects will my RICS Level 2 Survey examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience some minor cracking, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. In some older houses cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract and draw in water.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
