Home Buyers Survey in Shropshire

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Shropshire and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Shropshire property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Shropshire property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the property in Shropshire we plan to buy. Will the RICS Level 2 Survey investigate this?

Buyers in Shropshire should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to an infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller mentioned that the had been issues with lost tile pegs. What does the Shropshire surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Homes throughout Shropshire can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the slates to the parapet walls. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Permanent Seal GRP Roofing Specialist of 133 Alumwell Rd, Walsall, WS2 9XQ on 07976 414542 for a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are possibly going to lease it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a surveyor advise on the electrical system?

When preparing a RICS Level 3 Survey in Shropshire your surveyor will usually report on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a dangerous state of repair.

This should include a visual (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection look-over of any uncovered parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other issues like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should form part of the survey in Shropshire.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that an electrical check should be carried out every ten years (5 if renting out).
