HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Gorseinon and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Gorseinon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the Gorseinon property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Gorseinon property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Gorseinon Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that loose tiles had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the roof of the structure be time consuming to arrange?

This is a common concern for Gorseinon buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. A large number of properties may be exposed to damage to the roof. From sheeting to collar beams, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. The Gorseinon surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there may be loose blue asbestos soffit boards being found in the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as ceiling material. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in ceiling boards.

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, never to remove it and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Gorseinon Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Gorseinon survey. They will note potential asbestos during the Gorseinon survey and will advise accordingly.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may wet weather have on our new building in Gorseinon? Also, if there is damage, will they be a hassle to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Gorseinon and across the country, but the effect which wet weather has on a residence is rarely considered properly. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include mildew in the attic. This can lead to hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
