HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Resolven and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Resolven property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Resolven property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Resolven property's general condition along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does the Resolven Home Survey cover this?

Whether a house was built in 1707 or 2007, factors as varied as groundwater flooding or mould can create significant expense for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. For example, cracked plaster may be benign,

or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Small areas of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Resolven that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really a kind of render. Normally it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly beautiful and is/was found on Victorian and Regency houses. it can be problematic and Resolven Home Buyers Suveys sometimes show issues such as lateral hairline cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water enters below flashings that causes detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas supply?

The chartered surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the building, in addition to gas affiliated appliances or installations e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. The external fittings or housings however, won't be removed. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
