Home Buyers Survey in Westbourne

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to select a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey for a home in Westbourne and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Westbourne property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Westbourne property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the current owner has confirmed that it has been constructed with Ham Hill stone. Are there any defects that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Westbourne homes. Issues including weathered stone affect many stone-walled Westbourne homes. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

RICS Level 3 Survey on houses

What are the reasons in spending a bit more on the full structural survey instead of a RICS Level 2 Survey if buying a doer-upper townhouse?

Although very often described as Structural Surveys by some - they are no longer offered by Surveyors and are superseded by RICS Level 3 Survey If buying an unusual house like a poor condition house, it is now the best survey to purchase. Subsequent to a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house, a formal written report will be emailed and posted to the client running through any serious advice on the construction and uses of the house. There will be certain limitations with any survey as RICS chartered surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Westbourne property, an example being undoing electrical fittings.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would be advised to on guard for when buying a period property in Westbourne near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A RICS Level 3 Surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect they have on the property and its value. Values is usually higher owing to the areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are expected note whether the location might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Westbourne RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted, however these should be concern for your legal representative. Scott Walby Llp are based in Clifton House, Poole, Dorset, BH2 5PS might be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01202 311 112

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a property I am intending to acquire, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - does a RICS Level 2 Survey in Westbourne advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a RICS Level 2 Survey in Westbourne the RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe state. This should include a by sight view of any revealed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of possible problems relating to things like inspecting the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
