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.
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.
