HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bryn Y Baal and which one is the cheapest?

If the Bryn Y Baal property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Bryn Y Baal property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to look into drainage?

Regular rainfall is common in Bryn Y Baal and across the country, but the impact heavy rainfall can have on a property is usually overlooked. As an example, rusted iron elements strongly suggest that the drainage systems are damaged.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we want to move into, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a Bryn Y Baal survey go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Bryn Y Baal the surveyor should mention the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include a non invasive inspection of the accessible areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. fire blankets. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in walls.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.
