HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Barry Island and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Barry Island property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Barry Island property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we want to lease we saw that there is old wiring; will a Barry Island survey report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Survey in Barry Island a surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state. A Chartered surveyor is required to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation in addition to a Reinstatement Cost as standard. In order to determine the property's value your surveyor will relate to awareness of the Barry Island property market and other things relating to the property e.g. size Your Barry Island surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there are no major legal issues for example there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further Barry Island assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any Barry Island environmental issues like local industry, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Barry Island which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is highly appealing and is common on some Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Barry Island Homebuyer Reports frequently report issues for instance horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems may be when dampness gets in beneath DPCs that causes the render detaching. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
