HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Cefn Mawr property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Cefn Mawr property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Cefn Mawr residential property what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built homes be hard to maintain. Which related issues should we consider?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses in Cefn Mawr, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Cefn Mawr should be able to supply local stone.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Cefn Mawr? Will the Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Whether a property was built in 1703 or 2003, factors as varied as weather or mould can create difficulties for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Signs like a difficult-to-open drawing room window can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
