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.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Tintern, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. What should we expect a HomeBuyer Report to include?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building, such as cracked plaster.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the Tintern property we plan to buy - What advice should we get?

Houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to pest problems can include destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with mice, or any pest, speak to your Tintern surveyor

Traditionally built property

We are buying a farmstead in Tintern. What consequences will the property's architecture have on regular maintenance?

The age of a structure can worry purchasers. Tintern homes built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Tintern's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required. If you have doubts, speak to the Tintern surveyor for more detail.
