HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Abersychan and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond upkeep suggestions for the Victorian house we're going to buy?

Brick-constructed properties in Abersychan demonstrate several benefits, but they can also suffer from diverse problems. The RICS surveyor can investigate these as part of their report. One problem often found is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Woolley Lee of 44 Keswick Rd, Solihull, B92 7PH on 0121-242 6159.

For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. What should we do?

Homes in Abersychan are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. This issue 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, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides.

RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Abersychan constructed Ham Hill stone. What matters must we watch out for?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
