About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Baglan

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Baglan and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Baglan property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Baglan property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Baglan what does a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E5 - Windows' ?

An example of this is deformation to a doorway or window frame. 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. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the house or flat being surveyed does not need urgent attention. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to consider if planning to buy a converted house in Baglan in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any connection may have on the home and its value. Prices is, more often than not, higher as a result of conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors are expected note whether the property is possibly is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Baglan Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unapproved developments to the property should be reported, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our home surveyor check signs of flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a property survey will inform your decision. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
