HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Abertridwr and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Abertridwr property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the Abertridwr property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Abertridwr property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Abertridwr? Does the Home Survey cover this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Abertridwr buyers. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Abertridwr property's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Abertridwr, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E4' refer to?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. In Abertridwr, examples include bricks that are too close to the soil level without proper damp-proofing. Note that concealed elements will not be considered, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful not to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. However they will note suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
