HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Pentyrch and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pentyrch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Pentyrch property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include heavy metals. Potential health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Pentyrch surveyors will find structural problems resulting from the site. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Cardiff Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to go for a full structural survey in Pentyrch instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a modified home?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors and the new detailed type of survey which is called a Building Survey, is now available. You should choose the Building Survey in relation to the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified Pentyrch home of conventional building materials. Be aware that several provisos exist with a Building Survey as a surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the property or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. ceiling material. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in ceiling boards.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Pentyrch home survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
