HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brecon Beacons and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Brecon Beacons property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Brecon Beacons property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would need to verify if intending to buy a converted house in Brecon Beacons inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Brecon Beacons surveyors must possess knowledge of relevant local issues and the effect may have on the property. Values is generally higher as a result of them being preserved. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are expected note whether the property could be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Brecon Beacons Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unauthorised changes to the property may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Brecon Beacons property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To estimate the market value your chartered surveyor will pair knowledge of Brecon Beacons and other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Your Brecon Beacons surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions like no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local Brecon Beacons area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to Brecon Beacons environmental issues like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a house in Brecon Beacons. What can we do?

Property are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for pests may include traps. Your Brecon Beacons surveyor may report on signs of infestation.
