HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Llangammarch Wells and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Llangammarch Wells property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Llangammarch Wells property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to be aware of when planning to buy a property in Llangammarch Wells inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect they have with the building. House prices will likely be greater as a result of them retaining original features. However a growing number have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the property could be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the building may also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Llangammarch Wells builder has suggested subsidence is a problem affecting the property. What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Often, homes in Llangammarch Wells are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Surface cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the agent has told us that it has been built with Cotswold stone. What problems should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Llangammarch Wells are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the advent of Portland cement made lime mortar. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
