HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Llanidloes and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llanidloes property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Llanidloes property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Llanidloes home buyers survey inquire into any flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at risk of flooding damage; sensible owners and house buyers in Llanidloes are right to consider precautions. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including air bricks. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered semi detached home in Llanidloes that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is a form of render. Usually it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian and Regency properties for example. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Llanidloes Home Buyers Suveys sometimes reveal any number of problems for example trapped water leading to the render failing. Other potential problems could include sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Monks Park Limestone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Problems which impact stone-built property can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

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.
