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 .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should look out for when intending to buy a house in Llandrindod Wells inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the effect may have with the building. Property Prices will be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being preserved.

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the property is or might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will

advise further investigations are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the current owner has told us that it has been constructed with Portland stone. What problems must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Naylor Hill Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delamination will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Llandrindod Wells buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Llandrindod Wells?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However heavy rain and the effect it can have on a residence are not given more thought by purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are at risk is mildew or damp in the roof. Blocked rainwater goods can result in a damp or flooded cellar.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
