HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Aberporth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Aberporth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Aberporth property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can you make for buildings built from Dutch bond brick?

Brick-constructed properties in Aberporth demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also indicate a number of issues, ranging from thermal movement to moisture damage. Any such issues ought to be reported on. One problem often found is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Stewart And Sons Builders should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 49 Blackfordby La, Moira, Swadlincote, DE12 6EX or 01283 310141.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor look into the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

A qualified surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the building, in addition to gas connected fittings e.g. chimney breasts or flues. The Aberporth qualified surveyor won't remove any gas fittings nor will they run any tests on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the seller's agent has confirmed that it has been built with Kentish Rag stone. Are there any major matters that we should be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like displacement will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include replacing missing or badly worn stones.
