Home Buyers Survey in Turnham Green

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Turnham Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Turnham Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Turnham Green property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall)

A RICS Level 2 Survey will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the value of the property your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Turnham Green and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate materials used and draw upon other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives. The surveyor also assumes that there are no expensive legal problems like no troublesome covenants. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Additional local area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Turnham Green environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks along the garage ceiling, is this subsidence? What subsidence information does the Turnham Green RICS Level 2 Survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Often, homes are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will wet conditions have on our new home in Turnham Green? Will the RICS Level 2 Survey give details on this? Also, if there is work that needs to be done, will they be troublesome to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is not considered by purchasers. For instance, streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering will likely suggest that the drainage are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Turnham Green or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.


In a Turnham Green RICS Level 2 Survey, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

RICS created the RICS Level 2 Survey to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give buyers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. An example of this is end support that is inadequate for the beams of a conservatory structure. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too.
