Home Buyers Survey in Tenby

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Tenby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Tenby property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Tenby Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and also a rebuilding cost. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will combine local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Tenby surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions like there being no major problems.

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. It will also be assumed that there aren't any expensive legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Tenby area conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made in addition to Tenby environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.

Stone block wall damage

Can houses in Tenby built with stone cause issues for residents? Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built homes in Tenby can vary, delaminated render being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Carew Quarry, Carew Cheriton, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, SA70 8SR, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01646 651326 for more information.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring an abandoned sixties penthouse maisonette in Tenby?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. When contemplating the buying of an altered Tenby property e.g. a period house, it is now the best survey to choose. It provides full and salient advice about the buildings construction as well as any needs for future maintenance, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts. There will be certain provisos with any residential survey because a qualified surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Tenby maisonette such as lifting up fitted carpets. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will also be reported on.
