About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gorseinon

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the Gorseinon property, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Gorseinon property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can your Gorseinon Property Survey investigate this?

Factors from wet rot to insect infestation can cause high maintenance costs for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Gorseinon, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor investigate flood damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Flooding in Gorseinon can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a building next to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial waste disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems for example spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Gorseinon will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Swansea Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
