Home Buyers Survey in Pontcanna

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Pontcanna and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pontcanna property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Pontcanna property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would be advised to be conscious of if buying a converted house in Pontcanna in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in Pontcanna need to possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing they have on the property and its value. The price of property is typically greater which is down to the areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas are falling into poor condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors will advise if the home looks to be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Unapproved modifications to the building may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Window frame

On a Pontcanna HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but regular upkeep may still be required. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Pontcanna property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Excess condensation or vapour occlusions in a double-glazed window is one example.
