Home Buyers Survey in West Kensington

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a home in West Kensington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Kensington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the West Kensington property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency house in West Kensington.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a kind of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes show any number of problems e.g. lateral pattern like cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath. Other issues might be when moisture below DPCs that results in detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller has said subsidence may be an issue. What subsidence information does the West Kensington Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle beneath the building's own weight. Generally, a builder will return to a new building within a few months in order to make repairs.

Many houses develop superficial cracks in a ceiling plaster. This could be due to changes in temperature and humidity. In severe conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
