About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cardigan

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I book a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a property in Cardigan and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cardigan property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Cardigan property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Cardigan, and can a Cardigan chartered surveyor check for flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both property buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.An awareness of characteristics of the Cardigan area likely to affect the residence also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Cardigan. What warnings would a Cardigan surveyor give?

Brick-walled Cardigan converted property can experience diverse problems, from lack of a damp proof course to thermal movement. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. One frequently reported defect is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Poole W D for a repairs estimate at 029 2079 5836 or 71 Greenway Rd, Rumney, Cardiff, CF3 3HL.

Cardigan home purchasers may need to consider that number of approaches and materials can be found across Cardigan. For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Cardigan property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would be advised to verify when purchasing a property in Cardigan in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Cardigan must possess knowledge of relevant local factors and the bearing may have on the property and its value. House prices will probably be more than prices outside the area as a result of conservation areas retaining their original character. However a large number have been neglected and are in shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you whether the location is possibly so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Cardigan RICS Level 2 Survey will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your legal adviser.
