HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Swansea East and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Swansea East property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Swansea East property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a home in Swansea East with stone walls cause issues? What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built Swansea East homes can vary, penetrating damp being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
