HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Pencoed and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Pencoed property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Pencoed property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we intend to acquire, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does the surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Pencoed your surveyor should usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. A Home surveyor is required to focus on concerns such as confirming the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Pencoed.

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Pencoed house what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Cracks in brick walls is an example.

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment house in. What things does the surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Pencoed on a survey ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices for instance the amount of ground rent payable or whether there are any original features. .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A professional RICS surveyor will always go to the building as well as factoring in any other location factors that might affect values.
