HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Radyr and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Radyr property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Radyr property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Property Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Radyr that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is a form of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Radyr Homebuyer Reports commonly highlight defects for example, when movement of the wall causes cracks.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the supporting heavy loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems may be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Radyr, and think we saw signs of pests in the closet. What can we do?

Radyr homes will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
