Home Buyers Survey in Putney Heath

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Putney Heath and which is cheaper?

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

If the Putney Heath property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Putney Heath property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Putney Heath. What warnings would a property surveyor in Putney Heath give? Does brick decay faster in Putney Heath weather?

Putney Heath brick-walled houses can be subject to several common problems. One particularly serious issue is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Cotterill G S may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01905 452096 or 6 Stanway Cl, Worcester, WR4 9XL.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Putney Heath. Can a RICS Level 2 Survey search for possible flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Guardian), and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the RICS Level 2 Survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Putney Heath.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas heaters?

A surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the meter is in an escape route at the property, as well as gas related appliances e.g. fireplaces. Your Putney Heath RICS surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Of course, gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a farmhouse. What effect will the house's rafter roof have on maintenance?

Many buyers in Putney Heath have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a period conversion. A property's age, however, can worry purchasers. Putney Heath homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as suitable timber, , which could mean long-term upkeep.If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Putney Heath that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is layered over underlying brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco is very appealing and is/was often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Putney Heath RICS Level 3 Survey sometimes detail issues e.g. dampness trapped behind paint coatings

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when water beneath sills that results in detachment. Fixing problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.
