Home Buyers Survey in Narberth

RICS Level 2 Survey

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Narberth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Narberth property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the late 30s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create issues? Does the Narberth Home Survey cover this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Narberth can have unwanted consequences, with groundwater level variations and soil movement being relatively common. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Narberth, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick maintenance advice - can you assist? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built property feature several advantages, but they will also suffer from a range of defects, such as lack of a damp proof course. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with feedback. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Contact Harwood A for a repairs estimate at 01980 620171 or 1 Whatcombe Brow, Orcheston, Salisbury, SP3 4RJ.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a great deal of variety. For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Narberth surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
