HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Pontprennau and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Pontprennau property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Pontprennau property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

In a Pontprennau HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A rusted metal window frame is an example of a Section E defect. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the property in question will need some work. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included

in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rain have on our new property in Pontprennau, and does our Pontprennau building survey mention it?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that rainfall and the effect it can have on Pontprennau houses are usually overlooked by buyers. If you have visited the residence on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include damp stains around drainage, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. The good news is that guttering issues are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

House Prices

There is a property in CF23 on for £127, 004. What will the Pontprennau RICS chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Pontprennau ?

There are many factors that can impact on house prices, for example the square footage or the direction the house faces. One method is to analyse prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £99, 704, which is £27, 300 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £160, 475. 8, Youghal Close, Pontprennau, Cardiff, Cardiff, Cardiff, CF23 8RN sold for £83, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component.
