HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Caerleon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Caerleon property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Caerleon property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are possibly going to lease We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a the surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Caerleon Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor should comment on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous condition. This will include an overview or examination of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox in addition to areas e.g. ensuring supplementary bonding is in the correct place.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey in Caerleon. Inspecting any documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Caerleon .

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (5 if letting out). For local advice on electrical systems speak to Dunn & Dyer Electrical Ltd , 105 Goodrich Cr, Newport, NP20 5PF .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings)

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. In order to determine the valuation the valuer will combine awareness of the Caerleon property market and other things about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey won't 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. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any costly legal issues for example no laws are broken by use of property. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further Caerleon conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a ground floor apartment in Caerleon, does the RICS surveyor look for flooding damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Guardian). Both property buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites. The chartered surveyor may ask the seller if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
