RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Thame and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Thame property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Thame property, RICS recommend you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Thame property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century cottage in Thame. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Many purchasers have considered buying a home with character, such as a coach house or converted stable. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Properties featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you have doubts, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail. Erected between 1300 and 1410, 7 Buttermarket in Thame is a traditional open hall of the time.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what will it include?

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Thame property will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To work out the valuation the valuer will refer to knowledge of Thame as well as other factors about the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will make certain key assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains. The valuation is also on the basis that there are no problematic legal issues such as planning permissions being in order. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further Thame assumptions, like issues with access, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like industrial buildings, also being considered.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
