Home Buyers Survey in Wellington

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Wellington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Wellington property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Wellington property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

For the Wellington RICS Level 2 Survey can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

One example issue could be an inoperable sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a residence's value.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks, what are the remedial options and Should I be worried?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms (including white) are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Wellington. What warnings would a surveyor in Wellington give? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled residences in Wellington can be subject to various issues and defects. The RICS surveyor will cover these in his report, with directions for remedy.

A defect often found is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Mab Brickwork of 49 Turners Meadow Way, Beckenham, BR3 4TG on 07947 998322.

For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Wellington property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Is it worth paying more money for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on forties home ?

The RICS Level 3 Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its renaming a couple of years ago by RICS. The RICS Level 2 Survey is enough for a mid century or later unmodified house of conventional building materials. A RICS Level 3 Survey is the right selection in relation to the property described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to you outlining any critical advice in relation to the construction materials used on the house.

There are certain limitations with any survey as a chartered surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Wellington house for example removing the contents of cupboards.
