About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Presteigne

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Presteigne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Presteigne property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Presteigne property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Presteigne. Is there any brick wall repair tips we should be aware of?? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Presteigne structures demonstrate several benefits compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also experience numerous defects. Such defects will be discussed in the report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. T K Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07825 395762 or Mandarin Way, Cheltenham, GL50 4RR.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate. To ascertain the value of the property your RICS valuer will call upon awareness of the Presteigne property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation Your Presteigne surveyor will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any problematic legal problems such as no problematic restrictions. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Presteigne area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to Presteigne environmental issues like industrial buildings, 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 small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
