RICS Level 2 Survey

Should I get a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Splott and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Splott property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Splott property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a RICS Level 3 Survey in Splott include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and what will it include?

The RICS Level 2 Survey contains a valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as standard. To properly appraise the market value your chartered surveyor will relate to awareness of the Splott property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider materials used and use other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures, for example service connections, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A RICS Level 3 Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Window frame

For the Splott RICS Level 2 Survey can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

An example of this is any broken glass windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Splott residence.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a house next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial waste material. No one wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include methane gas generation. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Splott will find any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Cardiff Local Authority and advise you .
