HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Blaina and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Blaina property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Blaina property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco coated house in Blaina.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a kind of smooth render. Usually it is applied to brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is very appealing and is found on Georgian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Blaina frequently detail issues such as when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads above such as cracking under

the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Blaina, what warnings would you give for homes built from Diagonal bond walls? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-walled Blaina apartments can be affected by distinct issues. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Hudson G should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 38 Rectory Rd, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6BG or 07735 022654.

Blaina home purchasers may need to consider that a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture have been used for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Properties will often be free of major vermin. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber.
