HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Llantwit Major and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Llantwit Major property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Llantwit Major property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Llantwit Major residential surveyor consider indications of flooding damage?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a apartment in Llantwit Major and saw evidence of cracks along the kitchen ceiling. What subsidence information does the Llantwit Major home survey include?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose, as most of the tell-tale signs could easily be caused by other factors. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows which stick.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Llantwit Major.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very attractive and was found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Llantwit Major surveyors frequently discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the wall causes cracks that allow for water penetration.

Another example of problems may result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.
