HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Abergavenny and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Abergavenny property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Abergavenny property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is damp weather an issue in Abergavenny? Where there are problems, what should we do?

Both in Abergavenny, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is ignored by property buyers. For instance, mildew or damp in the roof suggest that the downspouts are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls cause issues? What factors should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including delaminated render. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to buildings in Abergavenny, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

External walls

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Abergavenny, what impact can a an amber light rating have on main walls?

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Note that concealed elements will not be considered. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Excess corbelling on non-structural veneer walls, for example, is included in Section E.
