HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Llandovery and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Llandovery property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations on the Llandovery property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Llandovery property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Llandovery Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To estimate the market value your independent surveyor will call upon local Llandovery market factors and other factors about the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will use key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Llandovery assumptions like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

Will a cottage with stone walls create more problems? Are there any problems that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. A K Jones, Powys Plant Hire, Llanerch Cottage, Llandefalle, Brecon, Powys, LD3 0NR for details. Call 01874 754440 for more information.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the period property I am interested to acquire it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - will the Llandovery surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Llandovery the RICS surveyor should usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state. He or she is trained to focus on possible problems relating to things like confirming the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the building should usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommend a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
