HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Adamsdown and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Adamsdown property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Adamsdown property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I should check on when planning to buy a building in Adamsdown near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority. Surveyors in Adamsdown are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local issues and any relation they have with the property and its value. Property values will likely be significantly higher as a result of them being largely unspoilt

Property surveyors are expected tell you if the house is possibly classified as such and Section I of the Adamsdown Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the property may also be advised, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Doulting stone. Are there any problems that need to be investigated?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including staining. Defects affecting stone-built Adamsdown homes can vary, staining being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Repair advice often includes removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

To source a specific stone material, contact a Adamsdown expert, such as Stonechina of Pacific Business Pk, Pacific Rd, Cardiff, CF24 5HJ.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the house I am hoping to move into it appeared that there is an old fuse board ; will a Homebuyer Report in Adamsdown advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Adamsdown Building Survey your surveyor will usually report on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe condition.

This should include a non invasive check of any revealed sections of the wiring in addition to things, for example verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the survey in Adamsdown.
