HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Cyncoed and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cyncoed property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Cyncoed property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Cyncoed property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the thirties house I want to lease I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system; does the surveyor advise electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Survey in Cyncoed a surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a general view of the unconcealed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or making sure that supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey.

Deteriorated timber

On a Cyncoed HomeBuyer Report what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

For a Cyncoed house or flat, one example could be damage to slate or clay tiles. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements are reported on. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the house's construction.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to check out when planning to buy an extended house in Cyncoed in a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils. Your surveyor need to have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the bearing they have on the property. The value of homes is typically enhanced which is down to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building is or might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Cyncoed survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
