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..

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Cardiff and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Cardiff.
