RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a house in Rotherhithe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Rotherhithe property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Rotherhithe property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. What can we do?

Property are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. The Rotherhithe surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Do I need to opt for the full structural survey when considering a modified sixties bungalow in Rotherhithe as opposed to a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Very Often (incorrectly) called the Full Structural Survey, it is no longer offered has actually been given a new title by RICS and the right name is actually now the RICS Level 3 Survey. A RICS Level 2 Survey will suffice if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified Rotherhithe house of typical construction materials and methods. A RICS Level 3 Survey is certainly the proper survey to go for the house described. Two to three days after a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to you specifying comprehensive and crucial insight concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are one or two limitations with the survey as a RICS surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Rotherhithe house e.g. lifting up floor coverings.
