About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Roath Park

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Roath Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Roath Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the Roath Park property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Roath Park property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s house with stone walls. Are there any issues that need to be investigated?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Problems which impact stone-built buildings can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated or cracked paintwork being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Roath Park home, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. In Roath Park, an example may be debris blocking drainage on an asphalt roof. Roof coverings will be checked by the surveyor, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a home close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include structurally instability. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Roath Park will notice structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Cardiff Local Authority and advise you .
