HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Brynmawr and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Brynmawr property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Brynmawr property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that damp from the leaking roof had been a concern - Will access to the roof of the building be problematic?

This often causes anxiety for home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can be blighted by problems like mould. From sheeting to parapet walls, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable local contractor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Brynmawr home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate the surveyor will should use awareness of the Brynmawr property market and other things relating to the property for instance: style of architecture The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't value things like sales incentives.

Further Brynmawr conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like Brynmawr planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause difficulties? I am buying a property in Brynmawr. Can your Brynmawr Property Survey consider this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Brynmawr buyers. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Brynmawr home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Brynmawr surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Isolated patches of waterlogged soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
