Home Buyers Survey in Pulborough

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Pulborough and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pulborough property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Pulborough property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Pulborough House Survey to mention this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Pulborough can have unwanted consequences. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Pulborough surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

External walls

On the RICS Level 2 Survey, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

The RICS Level 2 Survey is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house or flat. For a Pulborough residential property, one issue is excess corbelling. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated, an in-depth RICS Level 3 Survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a building next to Angells Sandpit Landfill near Water Lane and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous refuse disposal. Thousands of sites affect many thousands of people in the UK including Pulborough. Worries include structurally instability. Potential health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Pulborough will flag up structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Horsham Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Pulborough - What does the Pulborough surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Pulborough homes with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like bad drainage. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to Eagle Roofing Ltd of 4 Whylands Avenue, Worthing, BN13 3HG on 01903 267620 for an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Pulborough, what input does a surveyor in Pulborough give for a residence built from brick walls?

Brick-built Pulborough structures demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property. Unfortunately, they also show signs of diverse problems, such as DPC failure. An issue of particular concern is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. For more information, contact a local builder, Wilkinson Derek of 3 Alexandra Terr, Tiverton, EX16 5JS on 01884 243438.

Pulborough home purchasers may need to consider that broad range of techniques can be found across the UK. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
