HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Taffs Well and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Taffs Well property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Taffs Well property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Taffs Well Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Taffs Well.

Stucco is a form of solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth and even finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency homes. Specialists say that it is similar to plaster in its nature. It may contain lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Taffs Well surveyors commonly show issues for example, when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems can be dear as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a cottage partially constructed Slate. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Purchasers in Taffs Well should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Taffs Well are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Taffs Well should be able to supply local stone.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us. What will our building surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is often asked by Taffs Well buyers who know that homes can be hiding serious roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the valley gutters. Your surveyors in Taffs Well may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, 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 in Taffs Well for the job itself.
