Home Buyers Survey in Llanrumney

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Llanrumney and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Llanrumney property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Llanrumney property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

There are many factors that might affect house prices such as the structural condition of the building or the number of bathrooms. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against values registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £105, 563, which is £7, 300 less than the selling price (£100, 000 was the blended house/flat average). 6, Pensarn Road, Rumney, Cardiff, Cardiff, Cardiff, CF3 1SH a semi detached house sold for £105, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an independent house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. Your surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits in spending a bit more on a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if buying a extended cottage?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer available and the new more detailed survey named the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a non period unmodified Llanrumney property of standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. A Building Survey is the appropriate survey to opt for in relation to the house described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible areas of the house, the RICS surveyors report will be sent to the prospective purchaser specifying any critical information in relation to the state of repair of the building.

Bear in mind that certain survey no go areas exist with a property survey as a Llanrumney surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the house nor can he/she advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Llanrumney.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a kind of render. Typically stucco is applied to brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very beautiful and is often found on Georgian homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the wall causes cracking of the surface. Other issues might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems may be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.
