HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pontarddulais and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Pontarddulais property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Pontarddulais property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Pontarddulais. Can a building survey consider possible flooding?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of homeowners in Pontarddulais and across the country, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the property survey may advise on needed maintenance. The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The building surveyor may ask the residents if the Pontarddulais property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including flooring materials. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fireplace for example. Technically all forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Pontarddulais building survey. Your Pontarddulais surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been informed that clay soil can be an issue for residential property in Pontarddulais. Does a Pontarddulais Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Pontarddulais house will have an impact. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to warped window frames in the kitchen. A Pontarddulais surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
