HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pontypridd and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Pontypridd property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Pontypridd property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a house in CF37 in Pontypridd on with a local agent for £100, 487. What will the local surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Pontypridd during a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on house prices, for example the structural condition of the building or whether there is any subsidence. You can try to consider house values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £99, 287, which is £1, 200 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. 14, Bryn

Eglwys, Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, CF37 1JT a detached house sold for £203, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

The qualified RICS surveyor will go to the property as well as considering the long list of factors that can impact on values.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 18th Century barn conversion. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners. Structures constructed with traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced. This can mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. What matters should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including displacement. Defects such as displacement affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
