HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Llwyngwril and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Llwyngwril property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Llwyngwril property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a Llwyngwril Home Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with moisture changes in the soil and soil movement being relatively common. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the bedroom to warped window frames in the bedroom. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a converted barn and the agent has told us that it has been constructed with Forest of Dean stone. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind, and what will the survey reveal?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Waddington Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built buildings in Llwyngwril can vary greatly, with issues like displacement being quote common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds. Technically all forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. You should not attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. They will mention possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.
