Home Buyers Survey in Cyncoed

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Cyncoed and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Cyncoed property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Cyncoed property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Cyncoed property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Cyncoed HomeBuyer Report what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

For a Cyncoed house or flat, one example could be damage to slate or clay tiles. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements are reported on. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the house's construction.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the thirties house I want to lease I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system; does the surveyor advise electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Survey in Cyncoed a surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a general view of the unconcealed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or making sure that supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems? I am buying a property in Cyncoed. Can my Cyncoed Property Survey consider this?

Factors from fungal decay to heavy rainfall can cause inconvenience for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a range of issues. In Cyncoed's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Cyncoed home's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Cyncoed surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the building in Cyncoed we're buying, but we are not certain. Do we need a surveyor?

Properties will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should we go for a full structural survey prior to investing in an extended, seventies basement apartment in Cyncoed?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. When buying an unconventional Cyncoed apartment such as an extended apartment - the Building Survey is now the correct choice of home survey. This type of survey details full and frequently critical information about the homes construction materials on top of any defects, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

. Permanent outbuildings should be reported on.
