About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Adamsdown

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Adamsdown and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Adamsdown property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Adamsdown property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we investigate rainwater goods? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rain and the effect it can have on buildings are overlooked by property buyers. If you have only visited the home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage are blocked include damp stains around drainage, and may lead to staining of wallpaper and damp. In most cases, these defects are quite easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Defective door frame

For the Adamsdown HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

All doors leading outside are checked, assuming keys are available. Generally, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. A rusting metal door frame is an example of this.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Adamsdown. Can a RICS surveyor check flooding?

The lives of many owners in Adamsdown and across the UK have been disrupted by flood damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a property survey will inform your decision. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The property survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Adamsdown enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The property surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
