HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Broad Haven and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Broad Haven property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Broad Haven, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the dining room. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Broad Haven.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for pest problems may include destruction of tainted materials. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a property's foundations? Does a Home Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the drawing room, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Broad Haven surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To properly appraise the valuation your RICS valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Broad Haven market and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will draw upon other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local Broad Haven area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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