Home Buyers Survey in Pontardawe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pontardawe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Pontardawe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Pontardawe property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to check on if intending to buy a period property in Pontardawe in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Pontardawe need to possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and the relation may have on the building. The price of property is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state of neglect for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors will advise if the house looks like it may be is so classified and Section I of the Pontardawe Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic extensions to the building may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Pontardawe home and am concerned about the deterioration of the clay soil foundations. Will a Pontardawe Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include soil swelling. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. A Pontardawe surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house in Pontardawe but are worried about bugs. How do we investigate further?

Buyers in Pontardawe should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
