About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kilgetty

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kilgetty and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Kilgetty property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Kilgetty property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a 20s property built from brick chimney? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed apartments in Kilgetty demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to a number of issues, such as frost damaged pointing. Your house surveyor will cover these in his report along with recommendations. One particularly serious issue is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Kirkwood J A may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01473 718707 or 36 Westbury Rd, Ipswich, IP4 4RF.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas associated appliances or installations e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Kilgetty surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency house in Kilgetty that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really a form of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties for example. Stucco is often problematic and Kilgetty Homebuyer Reports sometimes highlight issues such as when settlement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems may be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.

House Prices

We are planning to be investing in a house in SA68 for around £172, 089. What factors will local surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Kilgetty ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect property values such as whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the status of the central heating. As an indicator, one can try to compare with house prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £180, 089, which is £8, 000 more than the price you are intending to pay. Sterling, Thomas Chapel, Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire, Pembrokeshire, SA68 0XH a detached property sold for £249, 700 .

In order for you to get an accurate and professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

The chartered surveyor will always attend the building as well as allowing for the long list of issues that can impact on values.
