About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Robin Hoods Bay

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Robin Hoods Bay and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Robin Hoods Bay property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Robin Hoods Bay property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials for example ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Robin Hoods Bay subsidence may be a concern. What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. Many homes in Robin Hoods Bay are constructed from a range of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel or sand concentration, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. In severe environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the building we are hoping to purchase we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a Robin Hoods Bay RICS Level 2 Survey go into detail on the electrics?

When preparing a Robin Hoods Bay RICS Level 3 Survey a RICS surveyor should usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a hazardous state. Your surveyor is trained to potential areas for concern such as examining the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.
