Home Buyers Survey in West Cross

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in West Cross and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the West Cross property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the West Cross property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

RICS Level 2 Surveys include a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate the surveyor will combine local property market knowledge and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions such as no significant problems.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any compromising legal issues for example planning permissions being in order. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should on guard for when planning to buy a house in West Cross near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have on the home and its value. Property values is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area as a result of them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the building looks to be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your West Cross RICS Level 2 Survey will recommend the proper questions are carried out by your solicitor. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Does the West Cross RICS Level 3 Survey cover this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem, with subsidence being a common example. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A West Cross surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
