Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Aberystwyth

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a property constructed from conventional building materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Aberystwyth

    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Aberystwyth) is also carried out by a RICS surveyor and is more detailed. Select this option for unconventional e.g. granite wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Aberystwyth

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aberystwyth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aberystwyth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Aberystwyth property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

For the Aberystwyth HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however.

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling are reported on. Planters and gardens abutting walls is one example.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 16th Century coast house in Aberystwyth. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Some purchasers would like to own a home with character, such as a farmstead. Vernacular architecture, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Aberystwyth property showcasing traditional methods can be difficult to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about pests on the road - Should we get a house surveyor?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for pest problems may include chemical treatment or removal or excision of affected timber. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
