Home Buyers Survey in Mumbles

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, Full Structural Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey on a house in Mumbles and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Mumbles property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. The RICS Level 3 Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Mumbles property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

We are in the process of buying a flat in SA3. It is on the market for £286, 700. What factors will surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Mumbles ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property such as whether there are any restrictive covenants or the location and proximity of nearby schools. As an indicator, one can try to benchmark prices the prices of flat achieved in the area for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £258, 000, which is £28, 700 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £259, 194. Langland Bay Manor, Apartment 3, Langland Bay Road, Langland, Swansea, Swansea, Swansea, SA3 4QH sold for £330, 000 .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Mumbles? Will the RICS surveyor in Mumbles report on this? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Mumbles and across the country, but wet conditions and the effect it can have on property in Mumbles are not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. One indication that gutters are at risk is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts, and may lead to damage to foundations. Fortunately, these defects are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when purchasing an old building? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some purchasers hope to own a house with personality, like a barn conversion. For traditionally-built Mumbles property, age, however, can be problematic. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Mumbles's conservation areas, Traditional building materials may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive RICS Level 3 Survey.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a residential property built Slate. Which potential issues should we consider?

There are a wide range of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include algae. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Maintenance tips include.
