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 .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Fforestfach house and the current owner has suggested that it has been built with Clipsham stone. Are there specific issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Upkeep fees for stone-built Fforestfach homes can be higher than for more standard. Issues including erosion affect many stone-walled Fforestfach homes.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to choose a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys do not technically exist now Building Survey has now superseded it. Commission the Building Survey for the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a non period unmodified Fforestfach house of standard construction materials. There are a number limitations are integral with any survey as a chartered surveyor is not in a position to open up the structure of the house nor can they assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would need to on guard for if intending to buy a converted flat in Fforestfach in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have with the home and its value. The price of property is typically more than prices outside the area because of them being largely unspoilt However a growing number have fallen into a poor state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors are trained to note if the home is/might be is so classified and Section I of your Fforestfach Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping modifications to the building should be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
