HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Manselton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Manselton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to be conscious of when planning to buy an extended house in Manselton near a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Manselton surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have with the home. The price of property will be inflated which is down to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are trained to note if the planned purchase is/might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Manselton Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a house close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: inert rubbish disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Manselton will note any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Swansea Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that wet rot had been a concern - Will access to the roof of the property be hard to organise?

This often causes anxiety for buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes could feature problems like missing tiles. From the dormers to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as loft insulation) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
