Top tips for a Cardiff Home Buyers Survey


In 1905 Cardiff was designated a city, and in 1955 it was declared the capital of Wales. Since then the city has seen great development with new builds still arising regularly. Highfields is a new development with contemporary homes available that are, in the main, detached properties with 3 to 5 bedrooms. Other new developments include 42 eco-homes planned in the suburban area of Cardiff off Allensbank Road.

Cardiff has a large selection of Victorian properties due to the rise in prosperity of its coal port in the 19th century. Grand Victorian terrace houses are situated on roads such as Plasturton Gardens and Cardiff Road. The city also has some large detached Victorian properties such as those on Teilo Street and Plasturton Avenue.

Properties in Cardiff that are built in close proximity to the bay, the River Taff and the Ely River are sometimes subject to flood warnings. Streets affected include Wyndham Street, Severn Grove and Dyfrog Road.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, parts of Cardiff, including streets such as Llandaff Road and Penciseley Avenue, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 5-10% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Properties in various parts of Cardiff, including streets such as Bute Square and Bute Avenue, may well be affected by the proposed light railway.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report..

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 Cardiff.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Cardiff. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Cardiff by calling 0333 344 3234 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
