About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Little Mill

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Little Mill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Little Mill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Little Mill property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would be advised to look out for if intending to buy a period property in Little Mill in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local considerations and any effect they have with the property and its value. House prices are usually significantly higher due to them being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas are falling into disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will advise if the property is possibly is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised developments to the building may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the house we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Little Mill purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected house may not always be easy to identify. As an example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. The Little Mill surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a house close to Little Mill (NP4) for around £168, 460. What considerations will a surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Little Mill ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from property values for instance the homes proximity to contaminated land or the local crime statistics. One method is to put side by side house prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £154, 260, which is £14, 200 less than the amount you are intending to pay. Myrtle Cottage, Penperlleni, Pontypool, Monmouthshire, Monmouthshire, NP4 0AH a detached property sold for £283, 500 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a sixties house we want to acquire we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, will the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Home Survey in Little Mill a RICS surveyor will make a note on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of open or exposed parts of the wiring in addition to concerns such as verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances like storage radiators or if there are miniature circuit breakers. .

Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Little Mill.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a property near to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice any structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Monmouthshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
