HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Pyle and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Pyle property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Pyle property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The local surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fixtures for example - balanced flues. However, the Pyle RICS surveyor won't actually remove external fittings nor will they conduct any tests of any kind on the system. Gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe firms in Pyle include Jon Lednor of 3 Pisgah Street, Kenfig Hill, Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan Tel. 07815032968 and Veolia Water Outsourcing Limited of Primeshade House, 40 Heol Mostyn, Village Farm Industrial Estate, Pyle, Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan Tel. 01656746334.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Victorian property might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed houses feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate distinct issues, including crypto-florescence and vertical cracking. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. BWS Contracts Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 3 Mcniven Ct, Stonehouse, Larkhall, ML9 3DY or 01698 793862.

One example is Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Pyle, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the surveyor inquire into indications of flooding damage?

It is estimated that over two million properties are exposed to floods, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The home surveyor may ask the residents if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
