RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in West Ruislip and which is the cheapest?

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

If the West Ruislip property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the West Ruislip property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

Do I need to upgrade to the full structural survey if buying a abandoned Edwardian property near West Ruislip instead of a RICS Level 2 Survey?

Commonly and incorrectly referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, it is no longer available as it has been superseded by RICS and the right term is now the RICS Level 3 Survey. A RICS Level 2 Survey is all you really need if buying a 60 year old or less West Ruislip home assembled from standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. The RICS Level 3 Survey is the correct survey to go for the house described. Two to three days after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report will be provided to the buyer detailing any crucial insight in relation to the construction and uses of the house. There will be one or two restrictions with a RICS Level 3 Survey because the surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the West Ruislip house e.g. removing the contents of cupboards. The following table for more detail on RICS Level 2 Surveys and RICS Level 3 Survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a house close to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste material. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems like downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

West Ruislip RICS surveyors will note any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database and Hillingdon Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the West Ruislip property we plan to buy. Will the RICS Level 3 Survey investigate this?

West Ruislip purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.
