Home Buyers Survey in Par

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Par and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Par property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Par property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that there is a 19mm gap between the bathroom wall and the door frame, is this subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor examine?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. Buyers in Par should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house after some months in order to make repairs.

In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, if it has not rained for some time, the water level underground will drop. This dries out, causing the clay to contract, putting pressure on the structure and which can result in movement. In serious environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings.

All forms (including white) are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.
