HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Caerwent and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to do any major works on the Caerwent property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Caerwent property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Caerwent, does the building survey search for any flood damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can cause flooding damage; sensible owners and property buyers in Caerwent are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial rubbish. No one would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns for example birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Caerwent will consider structural issues connected with the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Newport Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there is a possibility of asbestos pipe lagging insulation situated in the building. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Caerwent home survey. Your surveyor will note the risk of asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
