HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tintern and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tintern property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Tintern property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Tintern Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that wet rot had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

Tintern residences that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to dry rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From ceiling joists to fascias, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Tintern, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Damaged Render

What problems will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco home in Tintern.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very beautiful and is found on Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tintern surveyors commonly highlight issues such as lateral pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture enters beneath sills which causes the render detaching. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas flues?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for example, as well as gas associated appliances e.g. associated asbestos. External fittings or housings will not be removed. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
