RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Saxmundham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Saxmundham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Saxmundham property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Is it worth paying more money for a full structural survey, as opposed to a RICS Level 2 Survey on Victorian home ?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist now and the RICS Level 3 Survey is the new more technical home survey. If buying an unusual property like a poor condition Saxmundham house, this is now the most appropriate survey to get. Two to three days after an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a written report is sent to you setting out comprehensive and crucial professional advice in relation to the construction materials used on the house.

There are one or two limitations with any residential survey insofar as your surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Saxmundham property e.g. lifting up floor coverings.

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when buying older property in Saxmundham? What impact will the house's timber frame have on repairs?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. For houses in Saxmundham built before the 20th Century, age, however, can often be problematic, and Properties constructed with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a RICS Level 3 Survey prior to exchanging.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas installations?

The qualified surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position for instance, in addition to gas related appliances or installations e.g. associated asbestos. The Saxmundham RICS surveyor won't remove gas fittings and he or she won't run any tests of any kind on the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
