Home Buyers Survey in Tunbridge Wells

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Tunbridge Wells and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tunbridge Wells property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Tunbridge Wells property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a maisonette in the region a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste material disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include heavy metals .

Surveyors will find any structural problems resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Tunbridge Wells Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a property. What should we do?

Property are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal of infected furniture. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Tunbridge Wells RICS Level 3 Survey to mention this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Tunbridge Wells buyers, with groundwater level variations and soil swelling being relatively common. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. For example, small cracks in the bathroom floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Tunbridge Wells, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
