HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Borth Y Gest and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Borth Y Gest property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Borth Y Gest property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a building surveyor look into during the survey?

This is often asked by purchasers who know that homes may be exposed to roof maintenance problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the fascias to the roof battens. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Borth Y Gest contractor for the job itself.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to be conscious of if purchasing a period property in Borth Y Gest in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils. Borth Y Gest surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing may have on the home. Prices is generally higher due to the areas resisting change. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors can be expected to report if the planned purchase could be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping adjustments to the property may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

Borth Y Gest Homebuyer Reports a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. To work out the market value your RICS valuer will relate to area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. size The surveyor will also consider construction type and draw upon other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Borth Y Gest assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like industrial buildings, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
