Home Buyers Survey in Tooting

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a property in Tooting and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Tooting property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Tooting property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we should check on if planning to buy a home in Tooting in conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local authority. Surveyors in Tooting must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have on the building and its value. Prices is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of conservation areas being in good order.

Surveyors will advise you if the house is or might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your RICS Level 2 Survey will advise further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unauthorised changes to the building will also be reported in the Tooting survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

House Prices

Is £329, 900 in the right area price to buy a house in Tooting in SW17 for and what things does a Tooting chartered surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Tooting on a property valuation report ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect the price of property including the tenure or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It can help to consider prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £347, 200, which is £17, 300 more than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £306, 184. 11, Ramsdale Road, London, Wandsworth, Greater London, SW17 9BP a semi detached property sold for £470, 000 .

The only way to get an accurate home valuation is with a RICS Level 2 Survey which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we are interested to acquire, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does a surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When carrying out a Tooting RICS Level 2 Survey your RICS surveyor will typically comment on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe condition.

This should include a non invasive examination of the unconcealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things, for example verifying the type of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Tooting.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled conversion. Which major potential issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required. This is monitored by the local council. Defects such as delamination affect many stone-walled buildings.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Purchasers renovating buildings should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Tooting, you can contact local suppliers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems? I am buying a home in Tooting. Will the Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A Tooting surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
