About Us

Home Buyers Survey in St Mellons

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in St Mellons and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the St Mellons property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the St Mellons property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could rain have on our new home in St Mellons? Will the property surveyor report on this? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a house is rarely considered properly by buyers. For instance, rotten roofing elements may indicate that the rainwater goods are damaged, and may lead to water damage. In most cases, these defects are quite easy to remedy. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a property proximate to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial waste disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

St Mellons surveyors will flag up structural problems linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Cardiff Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and how is it worked out

St Mellons Homebuyer Reports a property valuation and also a reinstatement cost as standard. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will relate to knowledge of St Mellons and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and draw upon other assumptions e.g. there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no expensive legal problems such as building regulations having been complied. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Further St Mellons assumptions, such as access to a flat or water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, also being considered.
