About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Tonyrefail

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Tonyrefail and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Tonyrefail property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Tonyrefail property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor take into account on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Tonyrefail which we wish to buy.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Typically it is layered over red brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly highlight defects such as horizontal cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when dampness beneath flashings that causes large areas of detachment. Re-coating problems may be surprisingly expensive as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Tonyrefail will include a property valuation and a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and draw upon other assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no costly legal issues such as no laws are broken by use of property. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor during the legal process.

Further Tonyrefail conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental problems like nearby pubs, also being considered.
