Home Buyers Survey in Pudsey

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Pudsey property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, 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. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Pudsey property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the Pudsey surveyor give details on the safety of the gas supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations for example - the possibility of asbestos. The Pudsey qualified surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings nor will they run any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent warned us that access to the roof of the building could be difficult to arrange, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the roof of the building be difficult to arrange?

Properties in Pudsey in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to roofing problems. From tie beams to concrete tiles, every part of the roof will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of re-covering asphalt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A contractor with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a sixties house we want to acquire, it appeared that there is an old fuse board , will a RICS Level 2 Survey in Pudsey report on the electrics?

When performing a Pudsey Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a dangerous state. A Surveyor should also focus on concerns such as checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or verifying the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Pudsey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise an electrical check need be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The RICS Level 2 Survey contains an independent valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate as standard. To work out the valuation the valuer will take into account local Pudsey market factors as well as other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Pudsey surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures like issues with access, are made in addition to any Pudsey environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
