HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Crynant and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Crynant property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Crynant property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Crynant building will include a property valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will refer to awareness of the Crynant property market and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine construction methods and will use other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any costly legal issues such as your

potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Crynant area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Crynant environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I am interested to move into it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Crynant survey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Homebuyer Report in Crynant a qualified surveyor should usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor condition. A Surveyor is trained to issues like ascertaining the condition of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. What matters must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property, and enforced by the local council. Problems which impact stone-built property can vary greatly, with issues like delamination being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.
