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 .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the vendor has suggested that it has been built with Ham Hill stone. Which issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become

loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Penderyn Quarry, Penderyn, Aberdare, Mid Glamorgan, CF44 0TX, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01685 813179 for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about pests affecting properties nearby - What can we do?

Glynneath houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for pests may include use of poison or destruction of tainted materials. Your Glynneath surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would need to check on when intending to buy a period property in Glynneath near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Glynneath need to possess knowledge of local area factors and the effect may have with the home and its value. Property values is usually significantly higher owing to conservation areas being preserved. However many areas have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors are expected note if the home is/might be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved adjustments to the building will also be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
