About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Fishguard

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Fishguard and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fishguard property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Fishguard property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a farmstead. What impact will the structure have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers plan to buy property with real personality. A building's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Fishguard property employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Fishguard's conservation areas, Traditional building materials may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report inquire into possible flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property in Fishguard, such as via patio doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would be advised to consider if intending to buy an extended house in Fishguard near a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of local factors and any connection may have on the home. The value of homes will likely be enhanced because of them being preserved. However a growing number have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Property surveyors will tell you if the home is/might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic developments to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
