HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Whitchurch and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Whitchurch property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Whitchurch property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a house. What advice should we get?

Whitchurch home buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. This matter should be taken seriously. 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, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to an infestation can include professional cleaning or destruction of tainted materials. If you believe rats, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials such as eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards. Technically all forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, never to displace the asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. On no account endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. Your Whitchurch surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Tudor property appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-walled Whitchurch flats can show signs of a number of issues. This could be anything from thermal movement to frost damage. For example, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and may require immediate attention. Watts Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01639 842459 or Unit 6 Gurnos Ind Est/Bethel Rd, Ystalyfera, Swansea, SA9 2HW.

Brick-build property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a number of popular courses and methods. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
