Survey Tip 3

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some areas in Caerphilly such as Park Lane and Mountain Road, are in a raised Radon area, with properties built there having a higher chance than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

Properties within the raised radon area have a maximum radon potential of 1-3%. The percentage is the chance of the property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level.
Raised levels of noise pollution in the Caerphilly area stemming from road traffic mainly centre on the A469 main road. Properties in streets such as Brynhyfryd Road could suffer from raised levels of noise in the area.

Raised levels of noise pollution also occur from Caerphilly railway station, affecting nearby properties in roads such as Mill Road.
Some properties in the Caerphilly area are built in close proximity to historic coal mines. A search on the Coal Authority's website confirmed that a property in Bradford Street, Caerphilly, CF83 1GA was built within a previously mined area.

In these situations you may be advised to buy a Coal and Brine Search (click to find out more).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Caerphilly.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is a standard traffic light format, and is different to a Building Survey in many ways. The HomeBuyers report is suitable for standard construction properties post 1950 such as bungalows and flats.

The Level 3: Building Survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any extensions or alterations from their original build, or if you’re planning major works. The Building Survey comes in a more detailed report and included photos and explanations.
