HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Llanwrtyd Wells and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Llanwrtyd Wells property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Llanwrtyd Wells property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the Llanwrtyd Wells surveyor give in their report?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as sagging beams. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Llanwrtyd Wells, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor in Llanwrtyd Wells a quote for any suggested work.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as roof gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. You should never attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Llanwrtyd Wells home survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos during the Llanwrtyd Wells survey and will advise accordingly.
