HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Prestatyn and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Prestatyn property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Prestatyn property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Prestatyn building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. Some types may be in building materials such as gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not try to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Your Prestatyn surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Damaged Render

What will the Prestatyn Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency home in Prestatyn.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is very appealing and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is similar to plaster. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Prestatyn Homebuyer Reports can highlight any number of problems e.g. when it is exposed to constant driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues may result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-applying problems may be costly as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for the owner? What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic'. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the use of this declined with the introduction of cement. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.
