RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a house in Sawtry and which would be cheaper?

If the Sawtry property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey.

Damaged Render

What will my Sawtry Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered home in Sawtry that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone.
