HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pontypridd and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pontypridd property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Pontypridd property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

I am buying a property close to Tomen Y Clawdd , will this affect the property's value?

Tomen Y Clawdd is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance will usually increase the desirability of an area. A RICS surveyor will consider all regional factors when carrying out the homebuyer report in Pontypridd. Refer to the English Heritage site for more details on Tomen Y Clawdd.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the old property. What does the surveyor look for?

Pontypridd property with no other major issues can often hide roof maintenance problems, such as cracked and loose slates or tiles. From concrete tiles to tie beams, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Pontypridd, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist for the job itself. Speak to Rhondda of 13 Cymmer Rd, Porth, CF39 9BE on 01443 261521 for an estimate.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a valuation and also a "reinstatement cost". To fully consider the market value the valuer will pair local Pontypridd market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Pontypridd surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions, for example no significant problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any major legal issues for example consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local mining issues, also being considered.
