HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Pentre and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Pentre property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Pentre property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Pentre, what recommendations will you make for properties built from rat-trap bond walls?

Brick-constructed property do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also indicate considerable issues. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously. J J Brickwork

E.g. Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 15th Century farmstead in Pentre. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create issues for homeowners, and Pentre homes constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for further advice.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

A local surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) where relevant, as well as gas connected fixtures such as chimney linings. The Pentre local surveyor will not remove gas fittings and he or she won't conduct any tests on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
