HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Chepstow and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chepstow property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Chepstow property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Chepstow, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our RICS surveyor look into during the survey?

Property in Chepstow that are otherwise ideal can often hide difficulties with the roof, for example, bowing beams. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Chepstow

for the job itself. Call Coverall Roofing of The Granary/Church Lane, Winterbourne, Bristol, BS36 1SE on 01454 250148 for more information.

Deteriorated timber

For the Chepstow HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. This may not be urgent, however.

One example issue could be flashing and caulking defects. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components are reported on.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Chepstow include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Chepstow building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account experience of property in Chepstow and other considerations about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and will use key assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to Chepstow environmental issues like Chepstow planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

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.
