HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Acrefair and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Acrefair property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Acrefair property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this house in Acrefair is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed apartments in Acrefair do benefit from many advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also suffer from diverse problems, such as inadequate damp-proofing. One particularly serious issue is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Newman Geriant should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 2/Ashleigh Gr/Penydarren Park, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8AG or 01685 370106.

Buyers in Acrefair should consider that a number of popular courses and methods are found in many homes built in this country. One example is common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Consider renegotiating the price of the Acrefair property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller said that the had been a problem with cracked supports. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by Acrefair home buyers who are aware that property may be exposed to damage to the roof, including. From valley gutters to concrete tiles, the roof structure as a whole should be investigated, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor for the job itself.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Acrefair, and can a Acrefair residential surveyor check indications of flooding damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Flooding in Acrefair can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a home in Acrefair in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Acrefair area likely to affect the residential property also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Acrefair.
