HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Mountain Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mountain Ash property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Mountain Ash property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on Edwardian house ?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a post fifties unmodified Mountain Ash property of typical building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to go for the property mentioned. Subsequent to an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a formal report is sent to the prospective purchaser running through in depth and relevant details in relation to the condition of the house. There are several no go areas with a Building Survey insofar as the surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Mountain Ash house, an example being the removing the contents of cupboards.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with York stone walls. What related issues should we be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Mountain Ash buildings. Defects such as staining affect many stone-walled Mountain Ash buildings. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Mountain Ash buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos and does the Mountain Ash HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken not to break it and professional advice should be sought immediately. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Mountain Ash survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos risks and should inform you of the options.
