HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Gwaelod Y Garth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gwaelod Y Garth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Gwaelod Y Garth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

A chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the routing of any gas pipes for example, in addition to gas connected fixtures for example - associated asbestos. However, the Gwaelod Y Garth chartered surveyor will not remove the fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, if you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Gwaelod Y Garth home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your surveyor will use knowledge of Gwaelod Y Garth as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and use other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings.

Further area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or issues with access, are made in addition to Gwaelod Y Garth environmental concerns like local Gwaelod Y Garth industrial considerations, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Gwaelod Y Garth house what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. A missing step up into a house is an example. An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.
