HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Gwernaffield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gwernaffield property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Gwernaffield property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Gwernaffield chartered surveyor check possible flooding?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways could all cause major floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Gwernaffield area likely to affect the home in Gwernaffield also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there may be loose blue asbestos soffit boards being found in the building. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves.

All forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Gwernaffield survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Gwernaffield include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

Gwernaffield Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your chartered surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Gwernaffield market as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine materials used and will draw upon key assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Further Gwernaffield assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Gwernaffield environmental issues like local Gwernaffield industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
