Home Buyers Survey in Shotton

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a property in Shotton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Shotton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Shotton property, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shotton property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

What factors will surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Shotton ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on the price of property like the total square meterage of the home or the direction the house faces. .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent property valuation is to commission a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

The chartered surveyor will attend the house as well as allowing for any other area items that have a bearing on property prices.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks across the render on the outside walls when we last viewed the house. What subsidence issues does the RICS Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property may indicate subsidence. On the inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
