About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Queensferry

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Queensferry and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Queensferry property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Queensferry property's general condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Queensferry, and can a Queensferry chartered surveyor check possible water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Queensferry Queensferry property is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and owning a Queensferry property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the home survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house in Queensferry lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Queensferry is at risk.

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices like whether there are any restrictive covenants or the status of the central heating. .

The most accurate way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

RICS Level 2 Surveys include a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To work out the property's value your chartered surveyor will take into account area knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine construction type and draw upon key assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local area assumptions like service connections, are made as well as any significant Queensferry environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
