Home Buyers Survey in Sidcup

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Sidcup property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Sidcup property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Sidcup, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the RICS Level 3 Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Sidcup can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Signs like a sticking door in the living room or cracks along the living room wall can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Sidcup, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
