HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rudry and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Rudry property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Rudry property's condition in addition to information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Rudry, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor consider flood damage?

Burst dams, tidal activity and inadequate drainage could all cause major flooding, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The surveyor may ask the seller if the property in Rudry has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to be aware of if purchasing a period property in Rudry in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have knowledge of local area issues and the bearing they have with the home. Values is generally higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home looks to be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Rudry Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Rudry survey, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Rudry that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very aesthetic and is found on Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Rudry surveyors commonly show defects for instance when there is movement of the wall causes cracking of the surface. Other potential problems could result from the supporting heavy loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering problems can be dear as the skills are getting rarer.
