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 .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we are planning to lease we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Caerphilly survey report on the electrics?

When carrying out a Caerphilly Building Survey a RICS surveyor will typically remark on the state of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor condition. This will include a by sight view of the open sections of the wiring or fusebox and other potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of fixed appliances, e.g. water heaters or making sure that supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled structures cause problems for purchasers? Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for homes in Caerphilly with stone walls. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Caerphilly are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
