About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cross Keys

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Cross Keys and which is cheaper?

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

If the Cross Keys property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Cross Keys property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we want to acquire it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a Cross Keys Homebuyer Report advise the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Cross Keys the home surveyor should comment on the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in a hazardous condition. A professional surveyor is required to report back on possible problems relating to things like verifying the category of any electrical fittings in bathrooms.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a house next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste material disposal. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns such as birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Cross Keys RICS surveyors will examine any structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Newport Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Cross Keys home with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the roof be an issue?

Properties in Cross Keys that are otherwise ideal can often hide roofing woes, like bowing beams. Every element should be checked, e.g. clay tiles. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like thatching, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing contractor in the local area with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a warehouse conversion. Will maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can concern buyers. Property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings.
