Home Buyers Survey in Tintern

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tintern and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tintern property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Tintern property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things I should look out for if intending to buy a house in Tintern in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council. Tintern surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing may have on the property and its value. Values will be enhanced which is down to conservation areas resisting change.

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping modifications to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Damaged Render

What problems will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco home in Tintern.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very beautiful and is found on Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tintern surveyors commonly highlight issues such as lateral pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture enters beneath sills which causes the render detaching. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Deteriorated timber

In a Tintern HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

In Tintern, an example may be loose cement sidings. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be covered.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers in Tintern deciding whether or not to purchase a Tintern residence. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas flues?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for example, as well as gas associated appliances e.g. associated asbestos. External fittings or housings will not be removed. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
