HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Aberaeron and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aberaeron property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Aberaeron property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when buying an older property? Will the age of the home be an issue?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners. Buildings featuring traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your Aberaeron surveyor for further advice.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses cause problems for owners? What potential issues must we watch out for?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Issues including erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled property. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a property in Aberaeron and saw a gap below the skirting board in the kitchen. Is this a major concern, and what subsidence-related defects will my house survey examine?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be fixed on a reasonable budget.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence may be filled in and repainted. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
