Home Buyers Survey in Parkstone

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Parkstone and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parkstone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Parkstone property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Parkstone Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Parkstone.

Stucco is in fact a form of render. Typically it is layered over red brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. Stucco render is very beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian houses. It is very like plaster or mortar to apply. It may contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Parkstone can detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Remedying problems with stucco can be costly as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas heaters?

Yes. Your qualified surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the building, as well as gas related gas installations in the house e.g. fireplaces. Any external fittings or housings will not be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe firms in Parkstone include Ian Finch Plumbing & Heating Limited of 183 Ashley Road, Branksome, Poole, Dorset Tel. 07952389596 and Advent Installations (Fireplaces) of 15A, Bournemouth Road, Poole, Dorset Tel. 07879470119.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

The RICS Level 2 Survey contains a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will pair experience of property in Parkstone and other things relating to the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider materials used and draw upon other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no costly legal problems e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions, such as stairway access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Parkstone environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

Can Beer stone-built homes be problematic. Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including delaminated render. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Repair advice often includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
