HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Glynneath and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Glynneath property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Glynneath property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that amateur repairs had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by Glynneath surveyors. Homes throughout Glynneath can be hiding serious roofing woes, like wet rot. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked. Your Glynneath surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Glynneath roofing specialist.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor advise on the safety of the gas installations?

Your RICS surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) at the home, as well as gas affiliated installations such as chimney breasts. Your Glynneath chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause difficulties for Glynneath house? Will the Home Buyers Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. In Glynneath's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Visible results may be anything from small cracks in the lounge wall to a hard-to-open lounge door. There is a real benefit in booking a Glynneath surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
