Home Buyers Survey in Caernarfon

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I have a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Caernarfon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Caernarfon property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Caernarfon property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have been informed that Caernarfon properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Will the Caernarfon House Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Caernarfon property's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Caernarfon, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A RICS Level 2 Survey on a Caernarfon property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as part of the report. When calculating an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will call upon awareness of the Caernarfon property market and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and use other assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't 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. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues like no laws are broken by use of property. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local Caernarfon area assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental issues like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
