HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bassaleg and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bassaleg property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bassaleg property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Bassaleg, does the residential surveyor check indications of water damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Bassaleg and across the country. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas flues?

The chartered surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the routing of any gas pipes at the home, as well as gas affiliated appliances such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Bassaleg RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any fittings and won't run any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Bassaleg. What related issues should we be aware of?

Incorrect specification of coating type to damp or defective walls can often cause problems for houses in Bassaleg with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built houses in Bassaleg can vary, mould being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
