HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ebbw Vale and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Ebbw Vale property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Ebbw Vale property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency detached house in Ebbw Vale which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish solid render. Typically it is applied to underlying red brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency houses for example. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. Stucco is often prone to defect and Ebbw Vale surveyors commonly detail any number of problems which might include trapped water leading to problems with damp. Other potential problems could include sulphate attack

from sulphates absorbed from underlying brickwork. Re-applying Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ebbw Vale building will include a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. In order to determine the market value the surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Ebbw Vale market and other things about the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions such as there being no serious 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.

Further area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Ebbw Vale environmental concerns like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a farmhouse in Ebbw Vale. What effect will the unusual construction have on upkeep?

Some buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a Tudor home. Vernacular architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Ebbw Vale houses featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. Contact the property surveyor for more detail.
