About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Caersws

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Caersws and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Caersws property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Caersws property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Caersws House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor give details on the condition of the gas supply?

The will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position as part of the Caersws survey, as well as gas associated fittings e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be undone. The system won't be tested. Gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey check for signs of flooding?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise on urgent repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Caersws area likely to affect the residence also enables the RICS surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The RICS surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a conversion built Slate. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Defects such as delaminated render affect many stone-walled Caersws property. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Caersws property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Repair advice often includes removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
