Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Ceredigion

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are purchasing a home made of standard materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Ceredigion

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Ceredigion) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more exhaustive. Choose this for non standard , for example box frame construction or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ceredigion and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ceredigion property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ceredigion property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco semi detached home in Ceredigion that I wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a kind of smooth render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. The finish is very aesthetic and is/was often found on Regency properties. Specialists say that it is similar to plaster to apply. It can have lime in it as well as animal fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Ceredigion Building Surveys commonly show defects for instance trapped water resulting in the render failing

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include when the application is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-applying problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Ceredigion. What recommendations will a Ceredigion property surveyor make? Does brick decay faster in Ceredigion weather?

Brick Ceredigion residential property will suffer from a range of defects, from frost damage to spalling. The RICS surveyor will mention these and suggest potential remedies.

A defect often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Dell William George & Sons Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01225 761326 or 9 Bond Street, Trowbridge, BA14 0AS.

Ceredigion home purchasers may need to consider that number of popular courses and methods have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. As an example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

If the Ceredigion 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.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor check the condition of the gas appliances?

Your will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation as part of the survey, as well as gas associated appliances or installations e.g. chimney linings. Your Ceredigion local surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings nor will they carry out any tests whatsoever on the system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas safe engineer.
