Home Buyers Survey in North Ockendon

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in North Ockendon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the North Ockendon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the North Ockendon property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey investigate indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Flooding in North Ockendon can cause severe damage to both contents and property; sensible owners and purchasers in North Ockendon are right to consider precautions. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via badly fitted air bricks. An awareness of characteristics of the North Ockendon area likely to affect the residence also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residence is at risk.

The Environment Agency confirm that no recent warnings have been for North Ockendon.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a North Ockendon RICS Level 2 Survey can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. Signs of ridging or fishmouths is an example.

An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the home. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.
