Home Buyers Survey in New Southgate

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a property in New Southgate and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the New Southgate property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the New Southgate property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to check out if planning to buy a property in New Southgate inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local council.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect they have with the property and its value. Property values tends to be greater due to them resisting change. However many have fallen into a state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the building looks to be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the New Southgate RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest the proper questions are raised by your solicitor. Out of keeping extensions to the property will also be advised, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this New Southgate home is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed structures demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also suffer from considerable issues, ranging from spalling to erosion. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. Hunt P R should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01933 410226 or 150 Hall Av, Rushden, NN10 9EU.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick. Consider renegotiating the price of the New Southgate property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we want to lease we saw that there is old wiring - does a RICS Level 2 Survey in New Southgate advise the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in New Southgate a qualified surveyor should usually add detail on the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor condition. A professional surveyor is required to potential areas for concern such as ascertaining the condition of any fixed electrical appliances, e.g. heaters.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey. Looking at any documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician should form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in New Southgate .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
