HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Caersws and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Caersws property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Caersws property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Caersws House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old converted barn. What effect will the structure's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Caersws have considered buying property with real personality. A building's age, however, can often be problematic, and Buildings featuring traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can mean expensive ongoing repairs. If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for further advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Caersws, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Houses in Caersws with no other major issues can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey check for signs of flooding?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise on urgent repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Caersws area likely to affect the residence also enables the RICS surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The RICS surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
