HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Caerleon and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Caerleon property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Caerleon property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Water leaks around window or door frames is an example.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a property next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include complex organic chemicals. Potential health issues like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Caerleon will examine structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Newport Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas heaters?

A surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, in addition to gas related fittings e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. External fittings or covers won't actually be detached. The gas system will not be tested in any way. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially unsafe and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
