Home Buyers Survey in Red Lodge

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Red Lodge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Red Lodge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Red Lodge property, RICS recommend you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Red Lodge property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Red Lodge. What aspects of the house's roof will be checked during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Red Lodge. A large number of properties will suffer roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. The surveyors in Red Lodge could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor in the local area with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Red Lodge? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be a hassle to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet weather and the effect it can have on a home are often overlooked by purchasers. One indication that gutters are at risk is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas installations?

The chartered surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the mains gas installation for example, as well as gas related appliances or installations such as chimney breasts or flues. A Red Lodge surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests on the system. Gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Red Lodge, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will your Home Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Red Lodge property. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Red Lodge property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the RICS Level 2 Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
