HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bargoed and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bargoed property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bargoed property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor be focused on, on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Bargoed that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick to form a smooth flat finish. It is highly beautiful and is found on Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Bargoed commonly reveal issues for instance when movement of the wall causes cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Remedying Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Bargoed, and think we saw signs of bugs in the hallway. How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for vermin may include insecticides. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the home I am hoping to buy it appeared that there is old wiring; does Homebuyer Report in Bargoed report on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Bargoed the surveyor will typically mention the condition of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. A Chartered surveyor is trained to report on issues like checking the state of repair of fitted appliances like storage radiators. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Bargoed. A check for the documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Bargoed .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
