HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Boncath and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Boncath property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Boncath property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Boncath and are looking for houses built with brick chimney. What directions can the surveyor offer? Is age a factor?

Brick-walled homes in Boncath can suffer from several common problems. These can include DPC failure or badly applied render. For instance, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and should be taken very seriously. Contact Gillespie John for a repairs estimate at 020 8298 0081 or 23 Herbert Rd, Bexleyheath, DA7 4QE.

A broad range of techniques of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. For example, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond. 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.

Stone block wall damage

Will a residential property with stone walls create upkeep problems? Are there any major factors that we should be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a listed building should consider that appropriate maintenance methods and goods are used. Issues including deteriorating bedding affect many stone-walled properties in Boncath. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. M Evans, Annwylfan, Blaenffos, Boncath, Dyfed, SA37 0HY, quarrying Slate, for details. Call 01239 841404 for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this residence is located near a river. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor look for possible flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Boncath house in Boncath is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding occurs. In addition, the house survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Boncath or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
