HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Llandaff North and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Llandaff North property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the property, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Llandaff North property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with York stone walls. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for conducting the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when considering a dilapidated townhouse?

Structural Surveys are now defunct as a newer more detailed survey which has been given the name Building Survey, is now available. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post fifties unmodified Llandaff North property built out of conventional building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the right survey to choose for the house mentioned. Around 3 days following an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the house, a non prescribed format of report will be provided to the purchaser providing comprehensive and crucial professional advice about the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are several provisos with any survey because the surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Llandaff North property e.g. removing loft contents. The following article for more detail on HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Llandaff North, does the home surveyor check any water damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.
