Home Buyers Survey in Whitstable

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Whitstable and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Whitstable property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the Whitstable property, RICS recommend you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Whitstable property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as 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 a retaining wall)

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Whitstable building will include a property valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To work out an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will use in depth understanding of the Whitstable market and other factors about the property for instance: size The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed. A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there are no compromising legal issues like the property being sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer during the legal process.

Further area conjectures, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

Will a residential property with stone walls cause problems? Are there specific matters to consider?

From Westwood Ground Limestone to Grey Catcastle Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Whitstable can vary, cracks being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Whitstable Harbour, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1AB, which quarries Crushed Rock, for details. Call 01227 274086 for more information.
