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 .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor check the safety of the gas flues?

Your qualified surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas connected fittings like the possibility of asbestos. A Pentyrch RICS surveyor won't remove gas fittings nor will they carry out any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old cottage. What effect will the residence's age have on maintenance?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Pentyrch property, age, however, can concern buyers, and Pentyrch houses featuring traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the property surveyor for more detail.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s home with stone walls. Which major factors should we consider?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties. Issues including algae affect many stone-walled properties.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.
