HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Creigiau and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Creigiau property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Creigiau property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in a house we used to own. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What advice would the Creigiau surveyor give in their report?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Creigiau can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like incorrectly applied waterproofing. From trusses to ridge flashing, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we want to purchase we saw that there is an old fuse board - will the surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Creigiau Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a hazardous condition. A Home surveyor is trained to possible problems relating to things like examining the nature of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Creigiau.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco home in Creigiau.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The finish is very beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors can focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when there is movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks

Another example of problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.
