Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Neath

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a property built from conventional materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Neath

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Neath) is also carried out by a RICS qualified surveyor and is more thorough. Opt for this when buying a non standard e.g. cellared or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Neath

    This is an impartial valuation . It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Neath and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Neath property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Neath property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I look into gutters? Will the Neath HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact damp weather can have on a residence is often overlooked. If you have visited the house in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Poor drainage can lead to damp and mould.

Whether buying in Neath or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Neath surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Neath will include an impartial valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will use area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon key assumptions, for example there being no significant defects.

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.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco regency home in Neath.

Stucco is just dense render. Commonly stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian homes. It is similar to plaster. It used to have lime in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Neath Building Surveys can detail defects e.g. when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
