Home Buyers Survey in Whitehaven

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we select a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Whitehaven and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Whitehaven property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Whitehaven property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including acoustic tiles.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken however, on no account to remove it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it can be expensive must always be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Whitehaven RICS Level 2 Survey. They will mention possible asbestos during the survey and should recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century coast house. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers, and Houses employing traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Traditional building materials may be required. This may be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Whitehaven include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

The RICS Level 2 Survey contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. In order to determine the correct valuation your chartered surveyor should use local Whitehaven market factors and other things about the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and use key assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Whitehaven conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
