HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ebbw Vale and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Ebbw Vale property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Ebbw Vale property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with Kentish Rag stone walls. Which issues should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties in Ebbw Vale. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include efflorescence. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's

construction. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor look for signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas flues?

The will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for example, as well as gas associated installations such as balanced flues. However, the Ebbw Vale RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and he or she won't run any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Needless to say, gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.
