HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Llantrisant and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llantrisant property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the Llantrisant property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Llantrisant property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Llantrisant Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation as well as a "reinstatement cost". To be able to determine the correct valuation your independent surveyor will take into account area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions like there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or services, are made in addition to any Llantrisant environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to be aware of when intending to buy a flat in Llantrisant in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Surveyors in Llantrisant are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the bearing may have with the home and its value. Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area which is down to them being preserved. However a growing number have fallen into a poor state for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected advise you whether the property looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are raised by your legal representation. Out of keeping extensions to the property may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Llantrisant? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on Llantrisant houses is overlooked. If you have only been to the house in dry weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to repair fairly cheaply, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
