Home Buyers Survey in Spennymoor

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Spennymoor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Spennymoor property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it does offer comprehensive details of the Spennymoor property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In a Spennymoor RICS Level 2 Survey, what are the usual an red light rating defects affecting rainwater pipes and gutters?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert.

In Spennymoor, examples include missing gutters. They are visually inspected, where access is possible. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Spennymoor that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Typically it is layered over brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. It may contain lime in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Spennymoor surveyors frequently highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems like trapped water leading to damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include when the stucco has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems with stucco can be expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas installations?

The RICS surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position at the home, as well as gas connected appliances, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. External fittings will not be taken off. The system won't be tested. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
