HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ceredigion and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Ceredigion property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ceredigion property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not get a Ceredigion Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

Will a Ceredigion house with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? What should we be particularly aware of?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Stanton Moor Sandstone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like mould will vary with the particular type of stone.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like replacing missing or badly worn stones.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Ceredigion should be able to supply local stone.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems at our old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the loft will be reported on?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Ceredigion by property purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to damage to the roof. From valley gutters to rafters, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A roofing contractor with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote. Call Rogers Roofing of 14A Maes Lliwen, Nantglyn, Denbigh, LL16 5PH on 01745 550181 to request an estimate.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Ceredigion, does the building survey inquire into signs of flood damage?

The lives of many home owners in Ceredigion and across the UK have been seriously affected by water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
