HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Fforestfach and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Fforestfach property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Fforestfach property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I am hoping to acquire it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; will the surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Home Survey in Fforestfach the home surveyor should usually comment on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous condition. This should include an overview of the superficial areas of the wiring on top of areas e.g. verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or if there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Examining the documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Fforestfach.

Chimney stacks

On a Fforestfach HomeBuyer Report what does 'E1' refer to?

In Fforestfach, examples include a chimney which is noticeably leaning. Potential defects covered by Section E are inspected visually if the roof is hard to access.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Fforestfach house, omitting sections as necessary.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to check guttering? Are repairs going to be expensive?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet conditions and the effect it can have on houses in Fforestfach are often overlooked by purchasers. If you have only visited the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include rusted iron elements. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
