HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Blaenau Gwent and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Blaenau Gwent property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Blaenau Gwent property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Blaenau Gwent. Is there any brick wall upkeep suggestions we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed homes in Blaenau Gwent feature several advantages compared to other types of construction, but they can also be subject to considerable issues. These can include weathering or spalling. The property surveyor can investigate these as part of their report. An issue of particular concern is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Dell William George & Sons Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 9 Bond Street, Trowbridge, BA14 0AS or 01225 761326.

E.g. English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Blaenau Gwent property. What matters should we be aware of?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Cap Limestone to Cromwell Sandstone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

House Prices

Is £135, 132 a good price to buy a detached house close to NP23 for and what things does the surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Blaenau Gwent ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect house prices for instance anti social neighbours or the amount of light it receives. It can help to consider prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £113, 932, which is £21, 200 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. 4, Pant Y Fforest, Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent, Blaenau Gwent, NP23 5FR a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £210, 000 .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
