HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Newbridge and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Newbridge property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Newbridge property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are interested to lease, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a Homebuyer Report in Newbridge advise on any faults with the electrics?

During a Newbridge Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a general check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as issues like checking the nature of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Newbridge.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what will it include?

Newbridge Homebuyer Reports a property valuation and a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine the value of the property your RICS valuer will relate to area knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Newbridge surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions like no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any serious legal problems e.g. no problematic restrictions. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local area conjectures, such as access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Newbridge environmental problems 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.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a flat near to a rubbish dump

Homebuyer reports in Newbridge will note structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Caerphilly Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
