About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Llantwit Fardre

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Llantwit Fardre and which is cheaper?

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

If the Llantwit Fardre property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Llantwit Fardre property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For the Llantwit Fardre HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E6' include?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Outside doors are to be opened and closed, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked. A loose or poor-fitting frame is an example.

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the justification to order a full structural survey when acquiring a dilapidated terraced house near Llantwit Fardre over a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit they are often described as Full Structural Surveys by many home buyers, the correct term is now Building Surveys It is now the correct choice if buying a modified property such as a property in poor condition house. This type of survey will outline full and crucial professional advice concerning the buildings standard of construction and repair along with any important technical details after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Llantwit Fardre home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To work out the market value your RICS valuer will call upon area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. size The valuer will also consider construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there are no significant legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further Llantwit Fardre assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like local Llantwit Fardre industrial considerations, also being considered.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the Llantwit Fardre surveyor inquire into signs of flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are at a high risk of water damage caused by flooding. Both purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a home in Llantwit Fardre through several routes, including incorrectly fitted window frames.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Llantwit Fardre enables the home surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The home surveyor may ask the vendor if the home in Llantwit Fardre has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

The Environment Agency confirm that no recent warnings have been for Llantwit Fardre.
