HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Talybont and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Talybont property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Talybont property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this Talybont home has deteriorated - what should we do?

Brick-built Talybont conversions do benefit from many advantages over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also indicate considerable issues. This could be anything from spalling to erosion. A problem regularly identified is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

Buyers in Talybont should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours are found in many homes built in this country. E.g. Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Talybont which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a specific type of solid render. Normally it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is highly grand in appearance and is/was was often applied to Victorian and Georgian properties. Specialists say that it is very similar to mortar (sand and cement) to apply. it can be prone to defect and Talybont surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems such as when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-coating problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been informed that clay soil can be an issue for property in Talybont. Will the Talybont Property Survey consider this?

Whether a house was built in 1708 or 2008, factors as varied as weather or rising damp can create inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues, with subsidence being a common example. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like sticking doors or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Talybont, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
