Home Buyers Survey in Pontarddulais

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to opt for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pontarddulais and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Pontarddulais property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a RICS Level 3 Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Pontarddulais property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a flat in Pontarddulais and saw evidence of cracks along one external wall. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be put right without a great deal of stress. Generally, a builder will return to a new house after six months in order to repair settlement damage.

In some cases, subsidence or movement is challenging to identify, as most of the tell-tale signs could quite easily be caused by a number of factors. In extreme conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I want to purchase, it appeared that there is old wiring; will the surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Pontarddulais Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will usually mention the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor condition.

This should include a non invasive examination of any uncovered parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to things, for example examining the nature of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey in Pontarddulais.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should rainfall have on a property in Pontarddulais? Will the house surveyor report on this?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rainfall can have on Pontarddulais property is not given the attention it deserves. As an example, mildew or damp in the roof strongly suggest that the downspouts are at risk. This can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

Whether buying in Pontarddulais or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair fairly cheaply. If untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
