HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Narberth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Narberth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Narberth property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older converted barn in Narberth. What impact will the cladding have on regular maintenance?

For traditionally-built Narberth property, age can often be problematic, and Property built using traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may be required.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a bit more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on forties property ?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. When intending to buy an altered property, for example an older house in Narberth, this is the correct property survey to purchase. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid century or later Narberth property assembled from standard construction materials and methods.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a formal report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the purchaser outlining in depth and critical advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are a few limitations with the survey as a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Narberth house e.g. moving heavy furniture.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will rainfall have on our new property? Will the property surveyor report on this? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet rain and the effect it can have on a property are rarely paid due attention by property buyers. If you have investigated the house you are buying in good weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that downspouts are blocked include mildew in the attic, and may lead to penetrating damp. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
