About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Rudry

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rudry and which is cheaper?

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

If the Rudry property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Rudry property's condition in addition to information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet weather have on a house in Rudry? Will the house surveyor in Rudry report on this? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which damp weather has on a residence is usually overlooked. If you have investigated the house you are buying in dry conditions, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that gutters are damaged include mildew or damp in the roof.

Whether buying in Rudry or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 18th Century dovecot. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Some purchasers plan to buy a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. For houses in Rudry built before the 20th Century, age, however, can often be problematic, and Rudry homes built using traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as original bricks, , which could make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected at the property, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house, for instance fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Rudry RICS surveyor won't actually remove external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
