HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Hengoed and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hengoed property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Hengoed property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Hengoed Surveyor be looking for on a stucco regency home in Hengoed which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is very appealing and is common on some Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Hengoed commonly show defects e.g. when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems can be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this home is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our RICS surveyor search for signs of flooding?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage can all result in extensive flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residential property, such as via door frames. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Hengoed home, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made.

In Hengoed, an example may be masonry and concrete that is spalling or cracking. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too.
