Home Buyers Survey in Llantarnam

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Llantarnam and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llantarnam property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Llantarnam property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may wet weather have on our new house in Llantarnam? Will the building survey report on this? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However rainfall and the effect it can have on homes are rarely considered properly. If you have only seen the house in good weather, defects may not have been obvious. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Llantarnam. What will we need to investigate when purchasing an older property? What impact will the construction have on upkeep?

The age of a structure can often be problematic. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may create disruption for new owners. Discuss this with your surveyor for more information.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Llantarnam Building Survey to mention this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Llantarnam, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

Llantarnam Homebuyer Reports a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To fully consider the property's value the surveyor will should use knowledge of Llantarnam and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area conjectures like service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like busy roads, also being considered.

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.
