HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Porth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Porth property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Porth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Bath stone-built houses in Porth be difficult to repair. Which matters should we consider?

Poorly pointed or installed window frames can often cause problems for buildings with stone walls , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Maintenance tips include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Craig-yr-Hesg Quarry, Berw Road, Ynysybwl, Pontypridd, Mid Glamorgan, CF37 3BG, which quarries Sandstone, for details. Call 01443 493841 for more information.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to choose a full structural survey prior to acquiring a substantially modified purpose built regency flat in Porth?
