Home Buyers Survey in Creigiau

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Creigiau and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Creigiau property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Creigiau property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Creigiau Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Creigiau building will include a professional valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To be able to determine the correct valuation your surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Creigiau market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and use other assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative during the legal process.

Additional local Creigiau area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental issues like local Creigiau industrial considerations, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the property in Creigiau we plan to buy - What can we do?

Houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like SitexOrbis Ltd (Cardiff), Unit 7, Fairfield Industrial Estate, Taffs Well, Cardiff, CF15 8LA, or call them on 0292 081 0901.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we want to purchase we saw that there is an old fuse board - will the surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Creigiau Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a hazardous condition. A Home surveyor is trained to possible problems relating to things like examining the nature of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Creigiau.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a residence in Creigiau, does the RICS surveyor investigate any flood damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. 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 home in Creigiau through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home in Creigiau lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The property surveyor may ask the occupier if the home in Creigiau has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
