RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in South Woodford and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the South Woodford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the South Woodford property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Do I need to get a full structural survey if buying a modified regency house in South Woodford rather than a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Sometimes called the Structural Survey, this survey is no longer available and has been superseded by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the correct name is now the RICS Level 3 Survey. Go for a RICS Level 3 Survey for this house. The RICS Level 2 Survey goes into enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified property assembled from standard building materials.

Deteriorated timber

On a RICS Level 2 Survey carried out in South Woodford, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. For a South Woodford property, one issue is loose or missing tiles. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be investigated.
