HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Llanrhystud and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llanrhystud property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Llanrhystud property's condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Llanrhystud surveyor consider any flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN); sensible owners and purchasers in Llanrhystud are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a Llanrhystud home through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Llanrhystud home enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 15th Century cottage in Llanrhystud. Will the age of the home be a concern?

Some buyers in Llanrhystud have considered buying a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can sometimes be an issue. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. Speak to the chartered surveyor for more detail.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the correct valuation your independent surveyor will call upon experience of property in Llanrhystud and other factors about the property e.g. size The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions such as there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any expensive legal problems like no problematic restrictions. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Llanrhystud environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
