HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ogmore By Sea and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Ogmore By Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Ogmore By Sea property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Ogmore By Sea Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Ogmore By Sea that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a very smooth surface. The effect is very aesthetic and was found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Ogmore By Sea commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water beneath sills which results in the render detaching. Fixing problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as boiler cupboard.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Ogmore By Sea surveyor should mention possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the reason for choosing a full structural survey if buying a converted semi detached townhouse near Ogmore By Sea as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes called the Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available and this most technical survey has been renamed by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct name is actually now the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified house - such as a neglected house in Ogmore By Sea, this is the best RICS survey to do. Shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report will be sent to the prospective buyer summarising any crucial information about the construction materials used on the building. There will be certain limitations with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Ogmore By Sea house for example removing the contents of cupboards.
