Home Buyers Survey in Theale

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Theale property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Theale property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Are there any benefits for having the full structural survey rather than a RICS Level 2 Survey when considering a abandoned bungalow?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors as a new format called a RICS Level 3 Survey is now available. A RICS Level 2 Survey is detailed enough for a non period unmodified house built out of standard construction materials. A RICS Level 3 Survey is certainly the most appropriate selection in relation to the house mentioned. There are several limitations come with any survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor cannot open up the structure of the Theale house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Theale with stone walls create issues? What should we look in to?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including penetrating damp. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
