HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Merthyr Tydfil and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Merthyr Tydfil property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Merthyr Tydfil property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would need to consider when purchasing an extended house in Merthyr Tydfil inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Merthyr Tydfil are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local area factors and the bearing they have with the building. Property Prices are generally inflated because of them retaining original features. However a growing number have fallen into a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are trained to note if the house is possibly is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Merthyr Tydfil Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Merthyr Tydfil. What will we need to consider when buying an older property? Will the age of the house be an issue?

For houses in Merthyr Tydfil built before the 20th Century, age can sometimes be an issue. Houses showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I intend to purchase I think we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - will the Merthyr Tydfil surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Merthyr Tydfil Home Survey a surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Home surveyor will also issues like where to find the meter and fuse board . Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey in Merthyr Tydfil. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Merthyr Tydfil .

The IEE suggest a periodic test should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
