HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Treharris and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Treharris property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Treharris property, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Treharris property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Treharris that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact just a kind of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian homes. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can reveal issues e.g. when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a house in Treharris. Will the Treharris HomeBuyer Report consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

There are more than a handful of issues associated with clay soil. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as cracked plaster. There is a real benefit in booking a Treharris surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick maintenance advice for the converted property we're purchasing? What impact do Treharris environmental conditions have?

Brick-built Treharris apartments feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also experience considerable issues, ranging from badly applied render to erosion. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. A local builder should be able to assist. Call A & S Bricklaying Contractors Ltd, Unit 9 Llys Caer Felin/Felinfach, Fforestfach, Swansea, SA5 4HH on 01792 584279 for a quote for repair work.

As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.
