HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Abercarn and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Abercarn property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Abercarn property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Abercarn. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Farmington Stone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
