RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Writtle property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Writtle property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

The RICS Level 2 Survey contains a valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To estimate the market value your RICS valuer will refer to area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any serious legal issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider gutters? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the effect which rain has on a property is often overlooked. As an example, rotten wooden gutters may indicate that the rainwater goods are blocked, and may lead to penetrating damp. Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
