HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Tenby and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tenby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Tenby property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring an abandoned sixties penthouse maisonette in Tenby?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. When contemplating the buying of an altered Tenby property e.g. a period house, it is now the best survey to choose. It provides full and salient advice about the buildings construction as well as any needs for future maintenance, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts. There will be certain provisos with any residential survey because a qualified surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Tenby maisonette such as lifting up fitted carpets. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will also be reported on.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are planning to acquire, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system, will a Homebuyer Report in Tenby report on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Building Survey in Tenby the surveyor should usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe condition. A Surveyor is required to report back on issues like verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example storage heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Tenby.

The IEE suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give home buyers indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Quite a common example is excess condensation or vapour occlusions in a double-glazed window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
