Home Buyers Survey in Oadby

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Oadby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Oadby property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Oadby property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on apartments

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey for an apartment ?

RICS Level 3 Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by the RICS. A RICS Level 3 Survey is the best survey to choose if buying an unusual home, for example a neglected apartment in Oadby. This survey should outline thorough and notable information on the property's construction materials on top of any technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Oadby, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can we expect the Home Buyers Survey to mention this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Visible results may be anything from warping of floorboards to sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Oadby surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. industrial waste material disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins .

RICS Level 2 Survey in Oadby will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Oadby and Wigston Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
