HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Mountain Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Mountain Ash property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Mountain Ash property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Can we expect the HomeBuyer Report to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Mountain Ash can have unwanted consequences. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Mountain Ash's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Mountain Ash house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a building close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste material. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Health issues like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Mountain Ash RICS surveyors will consider structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Rhondda Cynon Taf Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damaged Render

What will the Mountain Ash Surveyor look for on a stucco coated house in Mountain Ash.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is highly beautiful and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Mountain Ash Home Buyers Suveys can highlight any number of problems for instance when movement of the wall leads to cracks. Other issues could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.
