HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Llantarnam property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Llantarnam property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a converted barn with stone walls cause issues? What potential issues must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Problems which impact stone-built buildings can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated render being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Llantarnam are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. 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.

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Llantarnam home. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the Llantarnam home being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but maintenance may still be necessary. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be covered. Delamination of hardboard or plywood is an example of this.

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours mentioned that the had been issues with lost tile pegs, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for Llantarnam buyers. Many properties can still be subject to roofing woes. From ridge flashing to purlins, the whole roof will be considered. The Llantarnam surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Llantarnam for the job itself.
