About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Llandaff

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Llandaff and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Llandaff property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Llandaff property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Llandaff, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rotten railings is an example of a Section E defect.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home in Llandaff and the seller has made us aware that it has been constructed with Portland stone. Are there specific problems to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include spalling brick. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Llandaff are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
