Looking for a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Aberbargoed and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Aberbargoed property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Aberbargoed property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Beer stone-built houses be difficult to repair. What should we look in to?

Repair fees for stone-built property in Aberbargoed can be higher than for more standard. Defects affecting stone-built property in Aberbargoed can vary, mould being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Gryphon Quarries Ltd, Old Mill Works, Gelligroes, Pontllanfraith, Blackwood, Gwent, NP12 2HY for details. Call 01495 227331 for more information.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, contact a local stonemason or specialist - A 1, Bedwellty Rd, Elliots Town, New Tredegar, NP24 6NH could help.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, as well as gas associated gas fittings in the home e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Aberbargoed qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will high levels of rainfall have on our new house?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that rainfall and the effect it can have on a residence are not considered by house purchasers. If you have only seen the home in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Aberbargoed or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
