HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Splott property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Splott property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the Splott surveyor report on the serviceability of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas associated fittings like the possibility of asbestos. A Splott surveyor won't remove any fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the gas system. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to on guard for if buying an extended house in Splott in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Splott are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have on the home and its value. The value of homes will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them retaining original features. However a large number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are expected report whether the building looks to be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic developments to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Splott - What aspects of the roofing will be checked during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Many residential properties can often hide damage to the roof. From gables to collar ties, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Splott, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
