HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ogmore Vale and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ogmore Vale property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the Ogmore Vale property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Ogmore Vale property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Clipsham stone-built property be hard to maintain. What defects should we be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction, which the local authority may police. Defects affecting stone-built homes can vary, erosion being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Choice of stone

will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Ogmore Vale Surveyor be focused on, on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Ogmore Vale that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a form of render. Commonly it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings for example. it can be problematic and Ogmore Vale Building Surveys commonly highlight issues for instance when settlement of the wall can lead to cracking of the surface.

Another example of problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Ogmore Vale? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Ogmore Vale, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately wet weather and the effect it can have on homes are usually overlooked by home buyers. If you have only been to the home in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible, and may lead to hazardous mould. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
