HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Llandrindod Wells and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Llandrindod Wells property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Llandrindod Wells property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Llandrindod Wells home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the correct valuation the valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Llandrindod Wells market and other things about the property e.g. size The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Llandrindod Wells environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Llandrindod Wells. Will access to the loft be difficult to arrange?

Properties in Llandrindod Wells that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing torn or punctured damp-proofing, among a range of other roofing issues. From concrete tiles to collar beams, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder from the area for the job itself.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to opt for a full structural survey prior to buying a modified thirties warehouse flat in Llandrindod Wells?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. One should go for a Building Survey for the flat outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid 20th century of later Llandrindod Wells flat made out of typical building materials. There are some provisos exist with a property survey as a chartered surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the flat or comment on efficiency of gas installations. Also flats can complicate the survey and as a result the surveyor can only go into detail on the flat itself, however he may advise on shared parts of the property such as the roof. For more details and a breakdown of what each survey type includes see surveys compared.
