Which Building Survey is the right choice?

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to buy a home built from standard materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Monmouthshire and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Monmouthshire property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Monmouthshire property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in a house we used to own - What does a property surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal could feature roof maintenance problems, such as mould. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked. Your surveyors in Monmouthshire may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Monmouthshire roofing specialist. Call Baker Building Services of 11 Clairwain, New Inn, Pontypool, NP4 0QA on 01495 750425 for a quote.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property in Monmouthshire and the seller's agent has made us aware that it has been constructed with stone. Which major issues should we consider?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I intend to purchase, I noticed that there is an old fuse board - will the Monmouthshire surveyor report on electrical defects?

During a Monmouthshire Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory state. A Surveyor will also provide detail on possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will be part of the Homebuyer report in Monmouthshire. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
