HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Ystrad Mynach and which would be cheaper?

If the Ystrad Mynach property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ystrad Mynach property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a cottage and the seller's agent has told us that it has been built with Beer stone. Which matters should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include salt contamination of. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.
