HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Llanbradach and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Llanbradach property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Llanbradach property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the seller has made us aware that it has been constructed with Doulting stone. Which matters should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Llanbradach homes. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Llanbradach homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific

advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we are interested to purchase, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a the surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Llanbradach the surveyor will typically add detail on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor will also report back on concerns such as checking the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician on the building should form part of the Homebuyer report in Llanbradach.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Llanbradach which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is/was often found on Victorian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Llanbradach surveyors sometimes reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other potential problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems with stucco can be dear as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.
