HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ammanford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Ammanford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Ammanford property's general condition along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there is concern white asbestos cement at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types are found in the building materials such as cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb it and expert advice should be sought urgently. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Ammanford home survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos risks and will offer advice.

English Heritage

I am intending to buy a building close to Banc Crucorford Round Cairn , will this affect the property's value?

Banc Crucorford Round Cairn is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance can certainly add to the desirability of an area. Examples of other local monuments of interest are Bancbryn Cairn Cemetery, Bancbryn Cairn Cemetery [East] and Bancbryn Platform Cairn.. The RICS valuer will include many regional criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in Ammanford. Visit the English Heritage site for further details on Banc Crucorford Round Cairn.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Ammanford Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Ammanford.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth solid render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to an even finish. The finish is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings. It is similar to any other render to apply. It used to contain lime in it in addition to animal fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Ammanford can report any number of problems for instance when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems may result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-coating problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
