HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cwmbran and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Cwmbran property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cwmbran property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Cwmbran which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a specific type of render. Usually it is layered over brick to form an even finish. The finish is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian homes. it can be problematic and Cwmbran surveyors sometimes highlight defects for example, lateral hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork.

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when dampness enters under flashings that causes large areas of detachment. Resolving problems may be costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Ham Hill stone. Which major issues should we consider?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. This is monitored by the local council, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a barn conversion in Cwmbran. What consequences will the cruck frame have on repairs?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a cottage. Use of traditional methods, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Cwmbran houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. Contact the surveyor for more detail.
