HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Powys and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Powys property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Powys property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Powys Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Powys property will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out an accurate value estimate the surveyor will take into account experience of property in Powys and other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider materials used and will use other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Powys assumptions like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental problems like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Powys Powys surveyor check for indications of water damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways can cause water damage caused by flooding. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Powys, such as via seepage through walls. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the house in Powys has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

House Prices

I am going to purchase a property in Powys. What things will a surveyor consider when carrying out a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect house prices from location of nearby transport links to defects in the lease. .

The most accurate way for you to get an accurate and professional home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. A surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
