Home Buyers Survey in Shawbury

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Shawbury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Shawbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Shawbury property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a surveyor go into detail on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Yes. The RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter for instance, as well as gas affiliated fixtures for example - fixed external ventilation hearths. The external fittings won't actually be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Shawbury Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Shawbury which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly grand in appearance and was often applied to Victorian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Shawbury RICS Level 2 Surveys sometimes discover any number of problems e.g. lateral cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues might be when moisture below DPCs that results in detachment. Re-coating problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does the House Survey cover this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Shawbury buyers, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the living room wall to sticking window frames. During the RICS Level 2 Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Shawbury , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the home's roof will be looked into?

This is a common concern for Shawbury home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing woes, like dry rot. From tie beams to dormers, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing contractor in the local area.
