HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Cwmcarn and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

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

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you comprehensive details of the Cwmcarn property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Cwmcarn Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Defective door frame

For the Cwmcarn HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

External doors are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. Broken door glazing is an example.

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase

a Cwmcarn property. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the current owner has told us that it has been partially constructed with Clipsham stone. What should we look in to?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include displacement. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency home in Cwmcarn.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. It is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Cwmcarn Homebuyer Reports commonly report potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other potential problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Fixing problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.
