Great help, very efficient and informative

I spoke to the surveyor Roisin directly before the report and after and she was very helpful and informative. She has helped me decide I'm probably not going to pursue the property I was after originally due to too many issues that the vendor isn't going to negotiate on.

Ross. Our surveyor in Newport

Meet Ross

Born and raised in the sunshine of South Africa, Ross now proudly calls the UK his home. A long-held connection to his British heritage, fueled by family roots, found its spark when he met his future wife, a Brit working in South Africa. Their love story led him across the globe, where he embraced his new life with open arms.

Ross's passion for buildings began early, leading him to a career as a Quantity Surveyor in South Africa. However, the desire for a more hands-on role beckoned, drawing him to Residential Surveying. This transition brought its own set of challenges and triumphs, shaping his expertise.

Back in the UK, Ross achieved his RICS qualification and joined the experienced team at Camsure Homes. His dedication and enthusiasm shine through in his commitment to exceptional client service.

Clear communication is his cornerstone, ensuring your property journey is informed and stress-free.

RICS Homebuyers Survey Report

Our certified RICS Newport surveyor can deliver a thorough Homebuyer Report tailored for properties in good condition constructed after 1930.

Utilising a straightforward "traffic light" system, the report effectively highlights the property's condition and structural integrity.

Beyond evaluating the physical state of the property, the report offers valuable insights on legal matters, identifies urgent issues requiring immediate attention, proposes potential remedies for defects impacting the property's value and provides guidance on future maintenance.

Additionally, for a nominal extra fee, we offer a market valuation of your property.

This comprehensive report also covers environmental considerations, including flooding risks, proximity to mining or landfill sites, soil types and the presence of radon gas.

Furthermore, it assesses the potential impact of infrastructure projects like the HS2 rail line on your property's value.

RICS Building Survey

Our detailed Building Survey, formerly recognised as a Full Structural Survey, is tailored specifically for properties constructed before 1930.

Going beyond the Homebuyer Report, this thorough assessment provides a more comprehensive evaluation of the property's condition, accompanied by valuable additional advice.

For a small additional cost, you have the option to request a property value assessment, offering tailored suggestions for addressing any issues, repairs and maintenance requirements.

This all-encompassing report equips you with the essential information to make well-informed decisions regarding the property's condition and future maintenance needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on how big and complicated the house is.

Usually, an RICS inspection takes 2 hours to a day but bigger houses might take days.

Ask your surveyor when they'll do the inspection and when you'll get their report.

  • Buying a house: Once your offer's accepted. It shows you're serious and speeds things up.
  • Selling your house: It finds any problems that could delay or stop the sale.
  • Worried about repairs?: A Level 2 survey can help you understand your options and fix things before they get worse.

  • England, Wales, NI: You pay if you're buying the house. Sellers can also get one.
  • Scotland: The seller has to get a Home Report for buyers to see.

Depends on what the survey finds.

No problems? Everything keeps going as usual.

Big problems? You might try to renegotiate the price, get the seller to fix things or even pull out of the deal. You might also need other experts to check things, which takes time.

No, it's not required by law in England, Wales or NI, but it's strongly recommended for buyers' peace of mind.

In Scotland, it's required before you can even put the house on the market.

New Housing Developments in Newport:

Newport has seen significant transformations recently, with major redevelopment projects revitalising its historic buildings. Despite initial challenges, the £100m Friars Walk shopping centre, opened in November 2015, marked the beginning of a substantial regeneration effort. Subsequent progress faced setbacks due to the pandemic, impacting the shopping centre.

However, positive developments such as the regeneration of Newport Market, upcoming projects like a new campus and leisure centre and the renovation of the Transporter Bridge are injecting new vitality into the city. The rising house prices in nearby Cardiff have also increased Newport's appeal, leading to significant housing developments.

Notable projects include:

  1. Ringland Regeneration:

    • A £24m project plans to build over 200 homes and a new shopping centre to replace the old Ringland Circle.
    • The redevelopment addresses high deprivation levels, with the first phase completed in June 2021.
    • The modern shopping centre will offer various services, including healthcare and community facilities.
  2. Glan Llyn:

    • Ongoing development at the Glan Llyn mixed community includes 4,000 homes, schools, amenities and open spaces.
    • Several phases are underway, with additional homes, a school, leisure centre and football pitches planned.
  3. Old Town Dock:

    • Newport City Homes aims to build 149 homes on a ten-acre site along the River Usk.
    • Plans focus on revitalising the area, emphasizing energy efficiency and community connections.
  4. Pillgwenlly:

    • Part of a long-term regeneration plan, Newport City Homes is providing renovated and new apartments, contributing to the area's improvement.
  5. Stow Hill:

    • A historic building near Newport city centre is being transformed into 36 flats, managed by Newport City Homes.
  6. Longmeadow:

    • Newport City Homes is building 35 new homes at Longmeadow Court in Lliswerry, with revised plans under review.
  7. Griffin Island:

    • Newport City Homes is refurbishing a listed building on Skinner Street to create 20 apartments, following a phased approach.
  8. Upper Dock Street:

    • Eighteen apartments are being built in the city centre on Upper Dock Street, with work completed and awaiting service connections.

These projects collectively contribute to Newport's urban rejuvenation, making it an increasingly attractive place to live.
