Home Buyers Survey in Carmarthenshire

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Carmarthenshire and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Carmarthenshire property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Carmarthenshire property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency semi detached home in Carmarthenshire which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly attractive and was often found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is almost exactly the same as mortar. It can have lime in it in addition to plant fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Carmarthenshire Homebuyer Reports frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. trapped water leading to the surface breaking which need attention.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the render is taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Resolving Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Yes. A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Carmarthenshire survey, in addition to gas connected appliances/installations for example - the possibility of asbestos. A Carmarthenshire RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and will not conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer immediately.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Carmarthenshire what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Carmarthenshire property, one example could be ponding on the roof. As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
