HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bryncoch and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bryncoch property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bryncoch property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more details get a Bryncoch Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Bryncoch. Regrettably, infestations can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision

of affected timber. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Bryncoch, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the attic be problematic?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ridge flashing to slates. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A contractor can provide an estimate.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette close to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Bryncoch will flag up structural defects linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Neath Port Talbot Local Authority and advise you .
