Home Buyers Survey in Purley

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

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

If the Purley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Purley property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a maisonette in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic refuse disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Purley will examine any structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Croydon Local Authority and advise you .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. Why would there be asbestos and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to move the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will report on potential asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
