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 .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we need to consider if buying a property in Blaenau Gwent near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Blaenau Gwent surveyors need to possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing they have with the home. Prices is typically enhanced due to them being largely unspoilt

Property surveyors are trained to inform you if the house could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Unauthorised developments to the property may be commented on but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

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.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, in addition to gas affiliated installations, for instance balanced flues. A Blaenau Gwent RICS surveyor will not remove the external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be deadly, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
