Home Buyers Survey in Plasmarl

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Plasmarl and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Plasmarl property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Plasmarl property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Plasmarl that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth flat finish. It is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Plasmarl Home Buyers Suveys frequently highlight defects for instance when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks. Other potential problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to displace it and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Plasmarl RICS Level 2 Survey. They will mention suspected asbestos during the survey and will recommend professional testing.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a home next to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health problems such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

RICS Level 3 Survey and valuations in Plasmarl will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Swansea Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Is a RICS Level 3 Survey advisable?

Scare stories about property pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as bed bugs as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for pest problems may include use of poison. If you believe bed bugs, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
