HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gowerton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gowerton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Gowerton property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a flat next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include structurally instability. Health problems such as cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Gowerton will note any structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Swansea Local Authority and advise you .

Conservation area

Are there any issues I need to be conscious of if planning to buy a flat in Gowerton in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local factors and any bearing may have with the building and its value. Values is generally inflated due to the areas being in their original state.

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the building looks like it may be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Gowerton property. What problems must we watch out for?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
