HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clydach and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Clydach property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Clydach property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there could be quantities of white asbestos roof gutters in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including boilers. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard.

All forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. They will report on possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that there is a 14mm gap between the sitting room wall and the door frame when we last viewed the apartment. What subsidence issues will the home survey investigate?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement will often occur in newly constructed structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, but this should settle after a short while. Most homes in Clydach are constructed from a range of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Cracks that appear without warning could indicate subsidence. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when buying a house built in around 1780 in Clydach? What impact will the age have on maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can sometimes be an issue. Clydach property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Clydach's conservation areas. If you have doubts, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail.
