HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Rumney and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Rumney property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Rumney property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there could be some brown asbestos roof tiles affecting the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including boards around windows.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in boards around radiators.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should not try to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will note the risk of asbestos and will offer advice.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a home close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous rubbish. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include methane gas generation. Health concerns such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Cardiff Local Authority and advise you .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the late 80s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be a source of difficulty? Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

There are a range of frequently-occurring defects associated with clay soil. Issues range from severe changes in the water table level to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like sticking window frames or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
