HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Llantwit Fardre and which is cheaper?

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

If the Llantwit Fardre property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Llantwit Fardre property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the building we are planning to move into it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Llantwit Fardre survey go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Building Survey in Llantwit Fardre your surveyor will usually remark on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. He or she is required to give detail on things like reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Llantwit Fardre.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we investigate downspouts?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the impact rainfall can have on Llantwit Fardre buildings is rarely paid due attention. If you have only visited the house in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible.

The good news is that issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to fix. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Defective door frame

For the Llantwit Fardre HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E6' include?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Outside doors are to be opened and closed, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked. A loose or poor-fitting frame is an example.
