HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Garndolbenmaen and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Garndolbenmaen property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the condition of the meter where relevant, as well as gas associated installations like balanced flues. A Garndolbenmaen qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Gas can be unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example soffit boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should never endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Garndolbenmaen home survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Garndolbenmaen that I wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually dense solid render. Typically stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. It is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. Stucco is often prone to defect and Garndolbenmaen Home Buyers Suveys can reveal any number of problems for instance when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the eaves. Resolving problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
