Home Buyers Survey in Penllergaer

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Penllergaer and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Penllergaer property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Penllergaer property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Penllergaer. Is there any brick wall repair tips we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed property in Penllergaer demonstrate several benefits compared to other types of construction, but they can also experience a range of defects, such as erosion. An issue of particular concern is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Brickmaster Construction Ltd at 6 Medlar Clo, Burton, Christchurch, BH23 7PG on 01202 478186.

For instance, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 15th Century converted stable in Penllergaer. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Some buyers would like to own a home with character. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Penllergaer houses featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Penllergaer's conservation areas. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.
