Homestead Building Surveyors

Homestead Building Surveyors Ltd is a Cardiff based, RICS Regulated, professional building surveying practice. We are a private practice operating in the South Wales area, covering NP and CF postcodes.

Unlike some of our competitors, and to ensure peace of mind for our clients, all our instructions are undertaken by fully Chartered Building Surveying professionals who are MRICS qualified and VRS Registered (RICS Valuer Registration Scheme).  

We specialise in providing a variety of professional services with regard to the purchase of your home, such as:

RICS Condition Reports.

RICS licenced product, which focuses purely on condition of the property and does not include a valuation, advise on repairs or on-going maintenance issues.  It is generally suited to modern properties less that twenty years old.

RICS HomeBuyers Reports.

RICS licenced product. This report is suitable for properties in a reasonable condition, but less than 100 years old, and if you would like more extensive information. It includes the features of the Condition Report, plus a more extensive inspection. It also includes a valuation of the property and an insurance reinstatement valuation.

Structural Building Survey.

This survey is suitable for all properties types and ages. The report is highly detailed and will contain colour photographs to illustrate defects and annotations. A building survey may be advised if major works are planned to renovate the property. The building survey does not usual include a valuation or insurance reinstatement valuation, but they can be arranged for a small additional fee. 

Private valuation.

Valuation reports are undertaken by RICS registered valuers for “Help to Buy Sales “or probate or matrimonial purposes.

We pride ourselves on providing a personal, fast, reliable and non-corporate service to our clients, and endeavour to return reports on the same day of the survey

Buying a house is probably the biggest financial commitment you will make in your life time and our aim is to provide you with sufficient information so you can make that informed choice.

He recommended that the property didn't need a full level 3 survey, being a younger house and that houses after World War 2 didn't need a full buildings survey. That seemed reasonable. His offer for a Level 2 excluded valuation or estimates for that would need to be done, even estimates. In the meantime I discover that Money Super Market suggests that it would be reasonable to expect valuation and indication of the costs of repair work. https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/a-guide-to-homebuyer-surveys-and-costs His reason for not providing estimates or indicative costs..... Quote: "unfortunately the way building materials and labour costs are going up I cannot comment on costs." So my conclusion: next time to find a local surveyor, recommended on Facebook by local people.

Dear Sian, I am sorry you fell this way, but for clarification I would like to add the following; The service I provided did not include a valuation as stated in the signed terms and conditions. The link included in you comments states the following “If there’s no valuation included, you could use the report’s suggestions for repairs to renegotiate the price. For example, if it’s going to cost you £5,000 to carry out work on the property’s damp walls, it’s reasonable to offer £5,000 less than the asking price”. Unfortunately, your comments are incorrect, there is no facility to supply budget figures in a HomeBuyer Report. If you wish to discuss this further please get in touch .

The survey was carried out within two weeks of request with the report being issued the day after the survey. The report was thorough and clear and, buying an old house, it was reassuring to have this information as part of the buying process. The surveyor was also helpful in quickly answering some follow up questions I had. Very happy with the quality of service received.

The survey was done about a week of requesting it and the results came back the following day. So glad I had this done as there was hidden issues with the property I am buying that I now know about, allowing me to renegotiate my price and save me some money. Thank you to Dave for the great communication and great service provided. I will definitely be using this company again for my next purchase.

Can't recommend Dave enough. He was prompt, thorough, responsive and helpful. And a much better price than other quotes. We used him twice as we didn't buy the first house following his survey.
