HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Lampeter and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Lampeter property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Lampeter property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1989-built apartment in Lampeter and saw evidence of a gap below the skirting board in the garage. What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external walls of the property., or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.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. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the property in Lampeter we plan to buy. Do we need a house surveyor?

Scare stories about property pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as dust mites as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for an infestation may include destruction of tainted materials.

English Heritage

We are purchasing a flat near Caer Cadwgan , will this affect the property's value?

Other monuments of interest are Caer Pencarreg, Careg-Y-Bwci and Castell Allt-Goch.. The RICS surveyor will include many local and regional factors when conducting homebuyer report in Lampeter. See the English Heritage website for more details on Caer Cadwgan.
