Home Buyers Survey in Upminster

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in Upminster and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Upminster property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Upminster property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

For a RICS Level 2 Survey on a Upminster home what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

An example defect for this is leaking roof drains. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere defects in the sewer system.

A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there may be an asbestos boiler affecting the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as cement. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Upminster Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos risks and will advise accordingly.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage)

RICS Level 2 Surveys include a professional valuation and a "reinstatement cost". In order to determine the value of the property the valuer will take into account awareness of the Upminster property market and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition. Your Upminster surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions like no significant problems. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings.

Further Upminster assumptions, like issues with access, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
