HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Old St Mellons and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Old St Mellons property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Old St Mellons property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial waste. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems like birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Old St Mellons will notice structural problems resulting from the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Cardiff Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Gas flame

Will the Old St Mellons surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

Your RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters at the property, as well as gas affiliated fittings for example - fireplaces. Any fittings won't be dislodged. The system won't be tested in any way. Gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are severe .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Old St Mellons home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Old St Mellons building will include an independent valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as standard. To properly appraise the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account local Old St Mellons market factors and other considerations about the property e.g. size. The valuer will also consider construction type and use other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any costly legal issues for example planning permissions being in order. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Further Old St Mellons conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
