Which property survey is the correct choice for my planned property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Monmouth

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a property made of conventional building materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Monmouth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Monmouth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Monmouth property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Chimney stacks are reviewed visually from ground level where appropriate. A settling or leaning chimney is one example. Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the Monmouth home is in a good state, but regular upkeep may still be required. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Monmouth surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

Monmouth Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. To ascertain the valuation the surveyor will combine area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions, for example no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Monmouth conjectures, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant Monmouth environmental issues like nearby pubs, also being considered.

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.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would need to look out for when purchasing a converted house in Monmouth in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the bearing may have on the building and its value. The value of homes will probably be enhanced because of conservation areas being in their original state. However many have fallen into disrepair for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house could be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping extensions to the property should be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your legal representative. James Warry & Co are a local firm situated at 4 High Street, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, GL16 8HF will be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01594 833184
