Home Buyers Survey in Clydach

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clydach and which is the cheapest?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Clydach property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Clydach home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. In order to determine the value of the property your independent surveyor should use local Clydach market factors and other considerations relating to the property e.g. square metres Your Clydach surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use key assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors don't factor in things like sales incentives.

Further area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental problems like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a residence in Clydach, does the house surveyor search for flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage could all cause major flood damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via patio doors. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property or on adjacent sites. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
