HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Gilwern and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Gilwern property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Gilwern property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a property proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste material disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health issues like congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Gilwern will note structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Monmouthshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with loose slates, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our building surveyor in Gilwern look for?

This often causes anxiety for buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Homes throughout Gilwern can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. From ridge flashing to decking, every part of the roof will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder from the area a quote for any suggested work.
