About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Blaina

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Blaina and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Blaina property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Blaina property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Blaina Home Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. Drought, for instance, can have a pronounced contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as cracked plaster. A Blaina surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Blaina, what warnings would you give for homes built from Diagonal bond walls? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-walled Blaina apartments can be affected by distinct issues. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Hudson G should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 38 Rectory Rd, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6BG or 07735 022654.

Blaina home purchasers may need to consider that a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture have been used for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.
