Home Buyers Survey in Walkden

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a home in Walkden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to do any major works on the Walkden property, it would be better that you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Walkden property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I need to check out when intending to buy a flat in Walkden in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have with the building. Values is generally more than prices outside the area owing to the areas being in good order. However many are falling into a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors are trained to advise you whether the location is possibly within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Walkden RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Out of keeping modifications to the property may be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1820s home in Walkden with stone walls. What problems should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

For more information, consider a stonemason or specialist in Walkden. For example, Flame Academy Ltd, 180 Bolton Road, Worsley, Manchester, M28 3BN (Phone: 0161-790 0795).

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home in Walkden we plan to buy. Should we get a property surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to pests can include use of insecticides or removal of infected furniture.
