Home Buyers Survey in Perton

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Perton property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

We have found a detached house in WV6 - Perton for £200, 048. What things does a Perton surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Perton on a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect the price of property for example any number of structural defects or the internal layout. You can try to weigh up prices against values recorded in Perton for similar houses.

This means house prices registered between July and October in 2012 was £203, 448, which is £3, 400 more than the amount the vendor is asking for and the flat/house average was £190, 603. Oakwood Cottage, Back Lane, Ackleton, Wolverhampton, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, WV6 7JJ a detached house sold for £45, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an accurate house valued is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does wet weather have on a building?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the impact heavy rainfall can have on a residence is not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage are at risk is spalling masonry. This can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century farmstead. Will repairs costs be higher?

Some purchasers hope to own a unique or characterful property. A property's age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Houses built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchanging. If you plan to make alterations to a period structure, discuss options with the property surveyor for more detail.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should on guard for if intending to buy a converted house in Perton inside a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection may have with the property and its value. Property Prices are typically higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to the areas being largely unspoilt However a growing number have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors will inform you if the planned purchase is/might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Perton RICS Level 2 Survey will advise suitable questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be an issue for Perton home? Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like a sticking door in the bathroom or minor wall cracks in the bathroom can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the RICS Level 2 Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered.
