Home Buyers Survey in North Hykeham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in North Hykeham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the North Hykeham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the North Hykeham property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I am intending to acquire I saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does North Hykeham RICS Level 2 Survey give details on on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a RICS Level 3 Survey in North Hykeham your RICS surveyor should make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor is trained to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example storage heaters. Inspecting the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the North Hykeham Surveyor be looking for on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in North Hykeham that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually smooth type of solid render. Usually stucco render is layered over red brick to form a very smooth surface. The effect is highly beautiful and is often found on Regency houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in North Hykeham sometimes detail issues such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems might be when moisture below sills which causes the render detaching. Re-applying problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a brown asbestos coating spayed on beams affecting the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. boards around radiators.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex. .

All forms are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a North Hykeham RICS Level 3 Survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
