Home Buyers Survey in Stratford

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stratford and which is cheaper?

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

If the Stratford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Stratford property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Stratford property but are worried about an infestation. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Property purchasers in Stratford should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to pests can include chemical treatment. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when purchasing an old building? Will repairs costs be higher?

Some buyers have considered buying property with real personality. For traditionally-built Stratford property, age, however, can be problematic. Stratford property showcasing traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced. Mention this to your RICS Level 3 Surveyor for further advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a 90s property built with brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built properties feature several advantages, but they will also experience distinct issues. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Contact Levene Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 07919 567082 or 59 Peartree Rd, Luton, LU2 8AZ.

As an example, Monk bond or shiner bond are both used in Stratford properties. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
