RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Tadley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tadley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Tadley property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the unmodernised property we are interested to move into, it looked like there is old wiring; will a Tadley survey go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a RICS Level 2 Survey in Tadley your surveyor will typically add detail on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory state. Your surveyor is expected to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection Report be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can high levels of rainfall have on our new property in Tadley? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

Both in Tadley, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact damp weather can have on a structure is not given more thought by property buyers. If you have only seen the property in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Poor drainage can lead to hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

A local surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter for example, as well as gas related installations e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. The Tadley chartered surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings or housings and will not run any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your Tadley Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Tadley.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. It is very grand in appearance and is often found on Georgian houses. It is very like plaster and mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes report any number of problems for instance when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.
