HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Carmarthen property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Carmarthen property's condition along with advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Carmarthen. What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in Carmarthen in otherwise fine condition could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes, like poor insulation. Any part of the roof or loft, such as valley gutters, ought to be checked, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) 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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when buying older property? Will repairs costs be higher?

Some buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a period conversion. A building's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Property featuring traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean long-term upkeep.Speak to your surveyor for further advice.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report includes a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Carmarthen market as well as other factors about the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any significant legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental issues like industrial buildings, also being considered.
