HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Tongwynlais and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tongwynlais property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Tongwynlais property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

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

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Tongwynlais?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rain and the effect it can have on houses in Tongwynlais are not considered by house purchasers.

However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
