Home Buyers Survey in Ryhope

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

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

If the Ryhope property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Ryhope property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the home we plan to buy. Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Ryhope property may not be raised during the conveyancing. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. Evidence may not be easy to find, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Are there specific matters to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that appropriate maintenance methods and goods are used, which the local authority may police. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing mortar with a suitable material.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Ryhope. What recommendations will a property surveyor in Ryhope make?

Ryhope brick-walled conversions can be affected by both minor and serious issues. Such defects will be discussed in the report along with recommendations. A serious concern is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. For more information, contact a local builder, Osborn Brickwork of 31 Penfold Dr, Wymondham, NR18 0WZ on 01953 423400.

Brick-constructed property can be found across Ryhope, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor look into the condition of the gas flues?

Your chartered surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like the routing of any gas pipes at the property, as well as gas associated fixtures for example - balanced flues. If there are any fittings they however, won't be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
