About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Pagham

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Pagham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Pagham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Pagham property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For the Pagham RICS Level 2 Survey, what will 'E6' include?

The RICS Level 2 Survey is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

External doors are checked, but will not force open any without keys. In general, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. Loose glazing in a door frame is an example of a Section E defect.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall upkeep suggestions, can you help?

Brick properties in Pagham will be subject to diverse problems. A defect requiring immediate attention is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Brook Terry at 32 Gellideg Isaf Rise, Maesycwmmer, Hengoed, CF82 7RB on 07890 388290.

Pagham home purchasers may need to consider that a great deal of variety have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Consider renegotiating the price of the Pagham property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Traditionally built property

What should we take notice of when purchasing older property in Pagham? What effect will the structure have on maintenance?

A property's age can be problematic. Homes employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Pagham's conservation areas, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to investigate guttering? We're concerned about replacement costs.

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet damp weather and the effect it can have on buildings are not given the attention it deserves. If you have only visited the new home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we check when the home is surveyed?

Homes in Pagham with no other major issues will suffer difficulties with the roof. From sheeting to valley gutters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor for the job itself. Speak to Parker S of 3 Well Road, Bognor Regis, PO21 4SR on 01243 265496 to request an estimate.
