HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Burry Port and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burry Port property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Burry Port property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos insulating board concealed in the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. You should not endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a residence in Burry Port, does the HomeBuyer Report look for signs of flooding?

It is estimated that over two million residences are exposed to flooding, and buyers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the seller, but this information may not be accurate.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To work out the value of the property the valuer will take into account awareness of the Burry Port property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also examine construction type and make certain key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any compromising legal issues like the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further Burry Port assumptions, like service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like pig farms, also being considered.
