Home Buyers Survey in Upper Tean

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Upper Tean and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Upper Tean property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a RICS Level 2 Survey however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Upper Tean property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Upper Tean Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 022 4428 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the home we're buying, but we are not certain. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Upper Tean. This issue should be taken seriously. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for insect infestation may include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with vermin, or any pest, speak to your Upper Tean surveyor

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could rain have on a Upper Tean house? Will the RICS surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Climate change is regularly in the news. However wet weather and the effect it can have on houses in Upper Tean are not given more thought. For example, rotten roofing elements strongly suggest that the downspouts are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond upkeep suggestions, can the surveyor help?

Upper Tean homes with brick walls can suffer from a number of issues. These can include moisture damage or thermal movement. Your house surveyor will mention these, with repair advice also supplied. One problem often found is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. A G at 41 Erriff Dr, South Ockendon, RM15 5AW on 01708 852020.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Consider renegotiating the price of the Upper Tean property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
