HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Gilwern and which one is cheaper?

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

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

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Gilwern property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Gilwern, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new property in Gilwern, and does our Gilwern property surveyor mention it?

Signs that drainage are blocked include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when purchasing an old building? Will the structure's age be a concern?

Older construction methods and materials can sometimes be an issue. Gilwern property showcasing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find .
