HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Penley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Penley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Penley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Penley, and think we saw signs of pests in the attic. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Properties are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to pests can include use of insecticides.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Penley. What warnings would a Penley property surveyor give?

Penley brick-walled conversions can indicate diverse problems, from frost damage to badly applied render. An especially severe issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Newman Geriant should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01685 370106 or 2/Ashleigh Gr/Penydarren Park, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8AG.

Buyers in Penley should consider that a good selection of methods and styles have been used for centuries. For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Penley house with West Cornwall granite walls. Are there any factors that need to be investigated?

From Dukes Gritstone to Red St.Bees Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including erosion affect many stone-walled homes.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
