HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Welshpool and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Welshpool property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Welshpool property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Welshpool Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Welshpool that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a form of solid render. Typically it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian houses. It can contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can focus on any number of problems which might include trapped moisture leading to the surface breaking. Other issues could include attack from salts absorbed from brickwork. Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a house in the region J A Bowen & Co, Landfill on Nant Fforch and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill take many forms including inert refuse. There are 1, 000's of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people throughout the UK including Welshpool. Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues like downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Welshpool surveyors will notice any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Shropshire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Welshpool Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the report. To ascertain the value of the property your independent surveyor will refer to awareness of the Welshpool property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location.. The valuer will also consider materials used and will make certain other assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any serious legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Welshpool environmental issues like Welshpool planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.
