HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Blaenau Gwent and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Blaenau Gwent property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Blaenau Gwent property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will a Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency home in Blaenau Gwent that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is layered over brick to form a smooth flat finish. The coating is very aesthetic and is common on some Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Blaenau Gwent Homebuyer Reports frequently show defects for example trapped water resulting in damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might involve attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Re-applying problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos insulating board concealed in the maisonette. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Homes erected prior to the mid eighties may contain any number of asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement sheet. It is found all over the world including Canada. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken not to damage it. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Getting rid of asbestos may be dear and must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Blaenau Gwent HomeBuyer report. However they will note the risk of asbestos and will inform you of the options.
