Home Buyers Survey in Beaumaris

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Beaumaris and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Beaumaris property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Beaumaris property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Beaumaris will include a valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To be able to determine the valuation the surveyor will call upon local Beaumaris market factors and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture. Your Beaumaris surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area conjectures like services, are made in addition to Beaumaris environmental concerns like railways, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the building we want to move into, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a surveyor report on the electrical system?

When preparing a Beaumaris Home Survey a RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state of repair. Your surveyor is expected to report back on possible problems relating to things like ascertaining any external or remote installations e.g. outbuildings or any external sockets. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that an electrical check need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument for choosing the full structural survey when acquiring a substantially modified mid terrace cottage in Beaumaris over a HomeBuyer Report?

Although often and incorrectly described as Full Structural Surveys the correct term is actually now Building Surveys. This is now the right property survey if buying an unconventional property e.g. an older house. The report gives thorough and crucial details in relation to the buildings condition along with any technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties cause problems for the buyer? Are there specific defects to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Ranging from Orton Scar Limestone to Totternhoe Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include delaminated or cracked paintwork. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Beaumaris properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For the Beaumaris HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a Condition Rating 1 have on roof coverings?

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A fairly common example may be evidence of improperly installed multiple layers of single ply plastic roofing. Section E2 defects will be checked by the surveyor, provided that access is possible.
