RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in St Anns and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the St Anns property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the St Anns property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. What does the property surveyor look for?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in St Anns by property purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to problems like bowing beams. From ridge flashing to concrete tiles, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A St Anns builder with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to Mossop R of 10 Murray St, Annan, DG12 6EG on 01461 203999 for a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. Is this a major concern and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a St Anns home survey. Surveyors will note suspected asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that there is a 13mm gap between the kitchen wall and the door frame when we last viewed the house. Is this a urgent danger, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience some minor cracking, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Generally, a builder will return to a new home after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.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. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
