HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Victoria Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Victoria Park property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Victoria Park property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not obtain a Victoria Park Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. inert waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries include methane gas generation. Health problems for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Victoria Park will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative

will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Cardiff Local Authority and advise you .

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1780 in Victoria Park? What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many buyers in Victoria Park hope to own a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can create issues for homeowners. Homes built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional building materials may be required. If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for more information.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

A fairly common example may be stair tread widths which are dangerously short. E7 elements are visually inspected. The type and condition of these parts should also be reported on.

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how concerning each aspect of the report is.
