HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Reynoldston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

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

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Reynoldston property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is.

In Reynoldston, examples include rot and insect damage to the beams in a conservatory's fabric. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests affecting some homes. What should we do?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify.

For example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to vermin can include traps and destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor give details on the condition of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, in addition to gas connected installations, for instance associated asbestos. The Reynoldston RICS surveyor won't remove the fittings and he or she won't do any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Gas can be fatal and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Reynoldston based gas engineers include Paul Rogers Plumbing and Heating of 24 Bellevue Road, West Cross, Swansea, West Glamorgan Tel. 01792421136 and C M Picon of 5 Burry Green, Reynoldston, Swansea, West Glamorgan Tel. 01792390862.
