About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Old St Mellons

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we book a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Old St Mellons and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Old St Mellons property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Old St Mellons property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to buy in Old St Mellons. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor check for any water damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Old St Mellons and across the country, and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Old St Mellons area likely to affect the house also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial waste. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems like birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Old St Mellons will notice structural problems resulting from the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Cardiff Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 15th Century renovated farmhouse in Old St Mellons. What effect will the construction have on repairs?

A building's age can be problematic. Homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict. If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your property surveyor for more information.
