HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kilgetty and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Kilgetty property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Kilgetty property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in Fuse box. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence

asbestos on a Kilgetty survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the Kilgetty survey and should inform you of the options.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the house in Kilgetty we plan to buy - What can we do?

Kilgetty property are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your Kilgetty surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency house in Kilgetty that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really a form of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties for example. Stucco is often problematic and Kilgetty Homebuyer Reports sometimes highlight issues such as when settlement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems may be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.
