HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Borth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Borth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Borth property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Borth Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to be aware of if planning to buy a house in Borth near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Borth surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect they have on the home and its value. The value of homes tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents because of conservation areas resisting change. However many are falling into a state of neglect e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the home might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Borth Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property partially constructed Slate. What factors should we be aware of?

Buyers of a listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic'. This is enforced by the council, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

Borth Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To work out the market value your RICS valuer will use knowledge of Borth and other things relating to the property for instance: size The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any significant legal problems such as the property being sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Borth environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.
