HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bridgend and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bridgend property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Bridgend property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Clipsham stone-built houses be hard to maintain. Are there specific issues to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Bridgend are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. John Maclennan Contractors, Lower Green Quarry, Cleat, Isle Of Barra, HS9 5XU for details. Call 01871 810508 for more information.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Can a HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with soil compaction or compression and soil movement being relatively common. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as cracked plaster. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
