HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Crymych and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Crymych property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Crymych property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a serious risk, and what subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience some minor cracking. Generally, a builder will return to a new house within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

It is not always obvious that subsidence is at work, due to the fact that the usual signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property in Crymych and the agent has informed us that it has been built with Portland stone. Are there specific factors to bear in mind?

From Purbeck Royal Bed Limestone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like spalling brick will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

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 Crymych should be able to supply local stone.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a house near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: hazardous rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues for example birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Pembrokeshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
