HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mumbles and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Mumbles property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Mumbles property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Mumbles Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

House Prices

We are in the process of buying a flat in SA3. It is on the market for £286, 700. What factors will surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Mumbles ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property such as whether there are any restrictive covenants or the location and proximity of nearby schools. As an indicator, one can try to benchmark prices the prices of flat achieved in the area for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £258, 000, which is £28, 700 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £259, 194. Langland Bay Manor, Apartment 3, Langland Bay Road, Langland, Swansea, Swansea, Swansea, SA3 4QH sold for £330, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. A RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Mumbles what does 'E9' include?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here which do not fit into the other categories. A sagging conservatory floor surface is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems at our old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a Mumbles house surveyor look into during the survey?

Residential property in Mumbles with no other major issues can still be subject to roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to slates. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Mumbles, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in the local area can provide one. Contact Foley K G of 1 Thistleboon Rd, Mumbles, Swansea, SA3 4HE on 01792 367864 for an estimate.
