HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Machynlleth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Machynlleth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Machynlleth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when buying a building constructed in 1780? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some purchasers hope to own a home with character. A building's age, however, can be problematic. Structures built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. Speak to your chartered surveyor for more information. Built between 1561 and 1561, Royal House is an example of a traditional town house in Machynlleth.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Machynlleth Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees)

A Homebuyer Report in Machynlleth will include a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To work out the value of the property your surveyor will factor in area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will also be assumed that there aren't any costly legal problems e.g. proper access over pathways. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Further Machynlleth assumptions, for example issues with access, are made in addition to environmental concerns like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
