Home Buyers Survey in New Addington

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in New Addington and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the New Addington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the New Addington property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a maisonette in New Addington, does the house surveyor check water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the RICS Level 2 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 19th Century gatehouse in New Addington. Will the residence's age be a problem?

For houses in New Addington built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and New Addington property constructed with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of New Addington's conservation areas. Mention this to the property surveyor for more detail.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about bugs. Should we get a surveyor?

Scare stories about house infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as bed bugs as minor annoyances. This danger should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a house close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste material. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Bromley Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
