About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Porthcawl

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Porthcawl and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Porthcawl property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Porthcawl property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 18th Century warehouse conversion in Porthcawl. Will the residence's age be an issue?

For traditionally-built Porthcawl property, age can concern buyers, and Porthcawl property featuring traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a home near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic waste material disposal. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include methane gas generation. Health issues like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Porthcawl will find structural problems linked to the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Bridgend Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
