HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Llanrumney and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Llanrumney property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Llanrumney property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing an old building in Llanrumney? Will the property's age be an issue?

A property's age can concern buyers. Homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Llanrumney. What aspects of the roof will be reported on?

This often causes anxiety for home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing woes, like bowing beams. From ceiling joists to purlins, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a local roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I should verify when intending to buy an extended house in Llanrumney in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local issues and any relation they have with the home. The price of property tends to be more than prices outside the area due to the areas being in good order. However many are falling into a state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors will advise if the house is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
