Home Buyers Survey in Penley

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Penley and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Penley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Penley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I expect to acquire I saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will a RICS Level 2 Survey in Penley go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Penley RICS Level 2 Survey a RICS surveyor should make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor state. A professional surveyor will also report back on concerns such as the location of the meter or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a periodic test be completed every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials including duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP.

Penley Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Penley survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos risks and will offer advice.
