Home Buyers Survey in Aberaeron

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aberaeron property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Aberaeron property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas mains supply?

The RICS surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) where relevant, as well as gas related fixtures such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. However, the Aberaeron chartered surveyor won't remove any external fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe certified Ceredigion based local companies include Park Home Solutions Limited of Ffyllon Fawr, Llwyncelyn, Aberaeron, Ceredigion Tel. 01545571777 and David O'Reilly T/A Upgrade Heating Services of 6, Cwrt Y Brenin, Ffosyffin, Aberaeron, Dyfed Tel. 01545570556.

The regulations require that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Aberaeron house built in the early 80s, but it has clay foundations. Does the Aberaeron RICS Level 3 Survey cover this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Aberaeron buyers, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. Drought, for instance, can have a significant shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. For example, small cracks in the bedroom ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

RICS Level 3 Survey on maisonettes

Should I get a full structural survey prior to investing in a substantially modified Edwardian warehouse maisonette close to Aberaeron?

Full Structural Surveys are now called RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 2 Survey is all you really need for a post 1950s Aberaeron maisonette made out of typical construction materials and methods. You should commission a RICS Level 3 Survey for the maisonette outlined.

Be aware that several limitations are integral with any residential survey as a qualified RICS surveyor is not authorised (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the maisonette or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when buying an older property? Will the age of the home be an issue?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners. Buildings featuring traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your Aberaeron surveyor for further advice.
