About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Llanmartin

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Llanmartin and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Llanmartin property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Llanmartin property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is some brown asbestos sealant concealed in the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in wall panelling. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful not to break asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will mention possible asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet weather have on a building? Will the Llanmartin building survey report on this? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which rainfall has on Llanmartin buildings is often overlooked by house purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are under performing is a waterlogged garden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Llanmartin Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. When calculating an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will relate to in depth understanding of the Llanmartin market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: general condition Your Llanmartin surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions e.g. there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Llanmartin area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Llanmartin environmental problems like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a sixties house we are planning to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets; will the Llanmartin surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Home Survey in Llanmartin a surveyor will usually report on the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive view of the accessible parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of possible problems relating to things like inspecting the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Llanmartin.
