RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Swanley and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Swanley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Swanley property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Will our Swanley RICS Level 2 Survey check for water damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage can cause flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding occurs. In addition, the RICS Level 2 Survey may advise on urgent repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a RICS Level 2 Survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residence is at risk.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I should look into if planning to buy an extended house in Swanley in conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities. Swanley surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the connection they have with the property and its value. Property Prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them retaining original features.

Surveyors will report if the property is or might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your RICS Level 2 Survey will advise the proper questions are raised by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the building may also be reported in the Swanley survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
