Home Buyers Survey in Northamptonshire

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Northamptonshire and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Northamptonshire property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Northamptonshire property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there is a possibility of asbestos pipe lagging insulation situated in the building. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the RICS Level 2 Survey in Northamptonshire go into it?

Properties constructed prior to the mid eighties will most likely include some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including flooring materials.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in fireplace. Most of it was sourced from the US.

All forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken however, never to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of asbestos will be expensive but absolutely must be carried out by experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Northamptonshire survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.
