Home Buyers Survey in Victoria Dock

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a house in Victoria Dock and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Victoria Dock property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make an extension, it would be better that you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Victoria Dock property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the RICS Level 2 Survey cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. water tanks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Victoria Dock survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos during the survey and will recommend relevant tests.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I am hoping to move into, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - will the surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Victoria Dock the home surveyor should comment on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. He or she should also report back on possible problems relating to things like inspecting the condition of fitted appliances such as water heaters or the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Verifying the location of the documentation from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.
