Home Buyers Survey in Brecon Beacons

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brecon Beacons and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Brecon Beacons property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Brecon Beacons property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to investigate downspouts, and does our property surveyor mention it? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rain and the effect it can have on Brecon Beacons property are not given the attention it deserves by buyers. One indication that drainage are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. This can lead to rotten roof timbers.

Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to repair. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when purchasing older property? Will maintenance costs be higher?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a cottage. The age of a structure, however, can often be problematic. Brecon Beacons structures built with traditional methods can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Brecon Beacons's conservation areas, .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you are uncertain, speak to your Brecon Beacons surveyor for more information.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco regency home in Brecon Beacons that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really a type of render. Usually it is layered over brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Brecon Beacons Homebuyer Reports sometimes show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems could be when dampness beneath flashings that causes detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Fixing problems may be costly as renderers are getting rarer.

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the argument for getting a the full structural survey when investing in a defective terraced cottage in Brecon Beacons as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit regularly still described as Full Structural Surveys the correct term is now Building Surveys Go for a Building Survey for the property you mention. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a non period Brecon Beacons house made out of typical construction materials. Be aware that several survey no go areas exist with a Building Survey insofar as a surveyor is not able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the property or assess safety of gas sources.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Brecon Beacons properties at risk, and does a RICS surveyor investigate any flooding?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can cause flooding damage, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Brecon Beacons.
