HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Treforest and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Treforest property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Treforest property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older converted cow-house in Treforest. Will the age of the house be an issue?

A building's age can concern buyers. Buildings employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Treforest that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a specific type of solid render. Usually it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Treforest sometimes reveal issues e.g. lateral hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork.

Another example of problems could be when dampness beneath sills which results in detachment. Fixing Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a home next to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert waste. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health problems for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Treforest will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Caerphilly Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
