About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Rogerstone

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rogerstone and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rogerstone property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Rogerstone property's general condition in addition to information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we need to look into if purchasing an extended house in Rogerstone near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Rogerstone surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the bearing they have with the building. The price of property tends to be inflated which is down to them being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors will inform you if the planned purchase could be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Rogerstone Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Rogerstone property. Are there specific matters to bear in mind?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including salt contamination of , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a property proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: commercial waste disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include complex organic chemicals .

Surveyors will consider structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database and Newport Local Authority and advise you .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with wet rot. What does the RICS surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Rogerstone homes in good condition may be exposed to problems like wet rot. From concrete tiles to ridge flashing, every element of the roof should be investigated. The chartered surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Rogerstone. Contact Hadley Building & Roofing of 104 Gaer Park Ave, Newport, NP20 3NW on 01633 678600 for details.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos and does the Rogerstone HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves for example. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it. Professional advice must be taken ASAP. You should not attempt to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Rogerstone survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
