Home Buyers Survey in Kidwelly

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kidwelly and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Kidwelly property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Kidwelly property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should not attempt to handle it yourself. Kidwelly Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Kidwelly building survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should offer advice.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey prior to purchasing a substantially modified, regency converted flat close to Kidwelly?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. One should carry out the Building Survey for the flat you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a 60 year old or less Kidwelly flat built out of standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. There are certain limitations exist with a property survey as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the building nor can he/she inspect under floor (unless accessible). Furthermore flats typically make access more complicated, and your appointed surveyor is only able to investigate the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she exist other tenant shared parts like for example common parts. For a table containing a breakdown of what each survey type includes see here.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our Kidwelly property surveyor check when the structure is surveyed?

Kidwelly property that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. From tie beams to decking, every element of the roof will be taken into account. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as laying tar paper or felt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
