RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Oxford and which is cheaper?

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

If the Oxford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Oxford property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I look into downspouts, and does our house surveyor mention it?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which heavy rainfall has on a house is not given more thought. If you have visited the property in on a sunny day, obvious defects may be harder to find. This could then result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

Fortunately, these defects are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Oxford properties at risk, and does a home surveyor look for flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Oxford Oxford house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and the value of a Oxford house in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home in Oxford, such as via patio doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Oxford area likely to affect the home in Oxford also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor, but this information may not be accurate.
