RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a house in Purfleet and which is cheaper?

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

If the Purfleet property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Purfleet property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a Purfleet RICS Level 2 Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with subsidence being a common example. 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. Signs like sticking doors or separation of the skirting board from the floor 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 house will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could rain have on a building? Could it affect the property value?

Both in Purfleet, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which wet weather has on homes in Purfleet is rarely paid due attention. For example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls indicate that the gutters are at risk, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Purfleet include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

The RICS Level 2 Survey includes an impartial valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your independent surveyor will take into account experience of property in Purfleet and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Your Purfleet surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Purfleet area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental concerns like flightpaths, also being considered.
