RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Patcham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Patcham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Patcham property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Patcham constructed with stone create more problems for a new owner? Which issues should we consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including efflorescence. Defects affecting stone-built Patcham homes can vary, efflorescence being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material. Purchasers renovating Patcham homes should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Patcham, you can contact local suppliers.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A RICS Level 2 Survey will contain a surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To estimate the value of the property your RICS valuer should use experience of property in Patcham and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider construction type and draw upon key assumptions, for example there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions, like issues with access, are made in addition to any Patcham environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
