Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Carmarthenshire

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a property built from conventional materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Carmarthenshire

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Carmarthenshire) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Select this when buying a non standard property such as stone slab roof homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Carmarthenshire and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Carmarthenshire property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Carmarthenshire property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report search for water damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Carmarthenshire area likely to affect the house also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage)

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your surveyor will refer to awareness of the Carmarthenshire property market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also evaluate construction type and draw upon key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Carmarthenshire area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to Carmarthenshire environmental concerns like railways, also being considered.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Carmarthenshire surveyors will notice any structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Carmarthenshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
