HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Tongwynlais and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tongwynlais property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Tongwynlais property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more information get a Tongwynlais Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Tongwynlais. Is there any Monk bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed houses feature several advantages. However, they can also be subject to numerous defects, from frost damage to horizontal cracking. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, Bricklayer of Springwood Cl, Harefield, Uxbridge, UB9 6EW on 01895 820442.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Tongwynlais Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Tongwynlais property will include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain the value of the property your RICS valuer will take into account knowledge of Tongwynlais and other considerations about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Tongwynlais area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like nearby pubs, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to order a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a derelict semi detached bungalow?

Structural Surveys are now defunct and the new more technical survey classified as the Building Survey, is now available. If you are contemplating the buying of a modified home, for example a tatty house in Tongwynlais, it is the correct RICS survey to get. Following an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the prospective purchaser detailing in depth and crucial insight in relation to the construction materials used on the property. There will be several limitations with any survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Tongwynlais house - such as moving heavy furniture.
