HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rhuddlan and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rhuddlan property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Rhuddlan property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Rhuddlan House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Rhuddlan.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Normally stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth flat finish. The finish is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Rhuddlan surveyors can detail defects e.g. when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we should check out if planning to buy a property in Rhuddlan near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Surveyors in Rhuddlan need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect may have with the home. The value of homes will be more than prices outside the area due to the areas being in good order.

Property surveyors can be expected to advise whether the building is or might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Rhuddlan Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping extensions to the building will also be reported but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials including shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb it and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
