About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Capel Curig

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey for a house in Capel Curig and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Capel Curig property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Capel Curig property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Capel Curig, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the RICS Level 3 Survey check possible flooding?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and owning a property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Capel Curig area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor may ask the agent if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

Capel Curig RICS Level 2 Surveys a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the correct valuation your independent surveyor will use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation Your Capel Curig surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures, like issues with access, are made as well as any significant Capel Curig environmental concerns like local industry, also being considered.

A RICS Level 3 Survey won't 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.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Capel Curig.

Stucco is really a specific type of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The coating is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties. it can be problematic and Capel Curig RICS Level 2 Surveys can reveal any number of problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall results in cracking of the surface. Other issues may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Capel Curig House Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

Whether a property was built in 17010 or 20010, factors as varied as termites or dry rot can create issues for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. 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. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the kitchen wall to sticking window frames. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor examine the condition of the gas heaters?

The RICS surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. This means things like whether the mains is connected at the property, as well as gas connected fittings such as flue/chimney maintenance. A Capel Curig local surveyor will not remove the external fittings and won't conduct any tests on the system. Gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
