HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Morriston and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Morriston property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Morriston property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Morriston Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we are intending to buy, the agent said that there is an unsafe electrical system; does Morriston Homebuyer Report give details on on the general state of the electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Morriston the surveyor will report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Home surveyor should also report back on issues like checking the outside installations like garden lighting. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey in Morriston. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Morriston .

The IEE advocate that a PIR be conducted every ten years (5 if renting out).

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including industrial waste material. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Morriston will note any structural issues connected with the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Swansea Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we need to be wary of when purchasing a building in Morriston inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to have local knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation may have on the home and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, inflated as a result of conservation areas being preserved. However many of them are falling into are falling into disrepair e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Morriston Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
