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 .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we need to be wary of when planning to buy a flat in Porth near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local council. Porth surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection they have on the building. Property values is typically greater due to conservation areas being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house might be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are

carried out by your solicitor. Unconsented changes to the building may also be reported, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Porth structure with a loft conversion - What does the building surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property can still be subject to roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

The expense of wholesale replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder for the job itself. Call Gregory John of 16 Penrhiwfer Rd, Tonypandy, CF40 1RL on 01443 441904 for a quote.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a home near to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. inert waste disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include heavy metals. Health problems such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Porth surveyors will examine any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Rhondda Cynon Taf Local Authority and advise you .
