RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Shinfield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Shinfield property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Shinfield property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £117, 400 the right sort of price to be buying a property in Shinfield in RG7 for and What things will a surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Shinfield on a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on house prices such as the tenure or the direction the house faces. It is useful to consider the prices of flat recorded in the same area for similar properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £120, 600, which is £3, 200 more than the amount the vendor is asking for and the flat/house average was £277, 361. Woodbury Court, Flat 6, Jouldings Lane, Farley Hill, Reading, Wokingham, Wokingham, RG7 1UR sold for £75, 000 .

The only way to get a professional property valuation is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Other external areas of the property

On a Shinfield RICS Level 2 Survey, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

The RICS Level 2 Survey is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. The part of the RICS Level 2 Survey mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Inadequate end bearing in joists is an example of a Section E defect.
