HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Caerphilly and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Caerphilly property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Caerphilly property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home surveyor check for water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Guardian), and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding begins.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including window frames. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The property surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the location of the meter at the home, in addition to gas connected gas installations in the house e.g. chimney linings. If there are any fittings they won't be detached. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
