HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Radyr and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Radyr property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Radyr property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Radyr properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor check indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?
