HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Llandrindod Wells and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Llandrindod Wells property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Llandrindod Wells property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Llandrindod Wells that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really just dense render. Usually stucco render is applied to underlying brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Regency properties. It is very similar to plaster in its nature. It may contain lime in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Llandrindod Wells surveyors frequently reveal defects such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-coating problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your RICS surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) for example, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations e.g. chimney breasts or flues. If there are any fittings they will not however be taken off. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old renovated farmhouse. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Llandrindod Wells have looked at purchasing a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Llandrindod Wells houses built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
