Home Buyers Survey in Tilehurst

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a home in Tilehurst and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Tilehurst property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Tilehurst property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a RICS Level 2 Survey carried out in Tilehurst what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Elements of the property covered by this section are inspected visually if the roof is hard to access. Loose, missing or deteriorated mortar is an example of this.

Severe defects impacting the property are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. RICS Level 2 Survey are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.
