Which property survey is the correct choice for my intended house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to buy a home constructed from conventional building materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Llanfechain) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor and is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. timber wall or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Llanfechain and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Llanfechain property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Llanfechain property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will wet weather have on a home in Llanfechain? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

I find it odd that the effect which heavy rain has on a structure is not given enough thought by home buyers. For example, spalling on walls around drainage could mean that the rainwater goods are blocked.

In most cases, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy, if not neglected. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Conservation area

Are there any things we need to consider if purchasing a flat in Llanfechain near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Llanfechain surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local issues and the effect may have on the property and its value. Prices will be enhanced which is down to the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors are trained to advise if the planned purchase is possibly within a conservation area and Section I of the Llanfechain Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications to the building may also be reported in the Llanfechain survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E4' refer to?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Llanfechain house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. Quite a common example is bowing, leaning or bulging brick walls. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.
