Home Buyers Survey in Llantwit Major

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Llantwit Major and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Llantwit Major property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Llantwit Major property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. What should we do?

Llantwit Major property are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your RICS surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To estimate an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will take into account knowledge of Llantwit Major as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Llantwit Major surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions, for example the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not 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 is an absence of any significant legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant Llantwit Major environmental problems like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

I am buying a 15th Century farmhouse. What impact will the construction have on upkeep?

Properties showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed.
