HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hirwaun and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Hirwaun property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hirwaun property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with Darley Dale stone walls. What potential issues must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects affecting stone-built houses in Hirwaun can vary, delaminated render being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the property in Hirwaun we plan to buy. Should we get a house surveyor?

Hirwaun houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of insecticides.

If you strongly suspect an issue with woodworm, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would need to check out if intending to buy a converted house in Hirwaun in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Hirwaun surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local issues and any connection they have on the home. The value of homes is typically greater which is down to them resisting change. However a growing number are falling into poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

RICS surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the property is or might be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
