Home Buyers Survey in St Davids

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or RICS Level 2 Survey on a property in St Davids and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the St Davids property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the St Davids property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos ceiling boards present in building. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a harmful material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as paper lining. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in painted over ceilings.

All forms including white are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful however, not to break it and professional advice must be taken immediately. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a St Davids survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in St Davids? Does a St Davids House Survey discuss soil composition the report?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a home. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracked plaster, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
