HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Llantrisant and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Llantrisant property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the Llantrisant property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Llantrisant property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Llantrisant Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Llantrisant and saw cracks along the kitchen ceiling, could this be evidence of subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the house survey investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures will experience cracking at some stage. A builder should return to a new structure after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. Collapsed mains drainage pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Inside the property, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Llantrisant? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on Llantrisant houses is overlooked. If you have only been to the house in dry weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to repair fairly cheaply, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a property in the region a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include structurally instability. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Llantrisant will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Rhondda Cynon Taf Local Authority and advise you .
