There are a great number of factors which could affect property values for example any number of structural defects or whether there are any original features. It can help to look at flat values recorded in the same area for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £118, 382, which is £27, 300 less than the amount being asked and the flat/house average was £129, 078. 13, Burford Gardens, Cardiff, Cardiff, Cardiff, CF11 0AP a leasehold flat recently sold for £75, 530 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an independent house valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

The RICS chartered surveyor will always actually visit the building as well as factoring in all other area issues that can affect property values.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes generate high upkeep costs for owners? Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

Purchasers in Llandough should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues including staining affect many stone-walled properties. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the old property. Will access to the roof of the house be time consuming to arrange?

Property in and around Llandough with no other major issues could unfortunately be experiencing ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. From trusses to collar ties, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Llandough, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.
