Home Buyers Survey in Mountain Ash

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Mountain Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mountain Ash property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Mountain Ash property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house in CF45 in Mountain Ash on with a local agent for £57, 227. What considerations will a surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Mountain Ash ?

There are many factors that might affect house prices e.g. the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or defects in the lease. It is useful to look at house prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £72, 527, which is £15, 300 more than the price being asked. Ty Carreg, Abercynon, Mountain Ash, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, CF45 4UR a detached house sold for £120, 000 .

An impartial way to get an accurate home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A RICS surveyor should visit the site as well as factoring in the multiple items that can affect house prices.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor check out the condition of the gas supply?

Your will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the Mountain Ash survey, in addition to gas associated appliances or installations for example - fireplaces. However, the Mountain Ash qualified RICS surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system. Of course, gas can be deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a property with a converted attic in Mountain Ash. What aspects of the property's roof will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

Properties in Mountain Ash in good condition can still be subject to issues with the roof. From dormer windows to parapet walls, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Your Mountain Ash surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor in Mountain Ash.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a sixties house we are intending to buy we noticed that there is old wiring. Does a surveyor report on the electrical system?

When preparing a Mountain Ash Home Buyers Survey a surveyor will typically remark on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in a hazardous state. A professional surveyor is expected to focus on things like ascertaining the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with York stone walls. What related issues should we be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Mountain Ash buildings. Defects such as staining affect many stone-walled Mountain Ash buildings. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Mountain Ash buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as 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.
