  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Haverfordwest

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Haverfordwest) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more detailed. Opt for this for unconventional , for example timber frame buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Haverfordwest and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Haverfordwest property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Haverfordwest property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Haverfordwest - What will our chartered surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Property in Haverfordwest in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like torn or punctured damp-proofing. From wind braces to trusses, the whole roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Haverfordwest, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Haverfordwest, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Haverfordwest include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

Haverfordwest Homebuyer Reports an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To work out the valuation the valuer will refer to local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and make certain other assumptions, for example the ground is not land filled.

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.

Further Haverfordwest conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Haverfordwest home buyers survey look for flooding?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residence through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
