Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Ystalyfera. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey consider signs of flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Ystalyfera home in Ystalyfera is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The home survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported

in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent mentioned that the had been issues with subsidence, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the roof will be checked?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Many properties can still be subject to difficulties with the roof. From fascias to valley gutters, every element of the roof should be reported on. The chartered surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Ystalyfera builder for the job itself.

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing an old building? Will the home's age be a concern?
