Home Buyers Survey in Aberdovey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Aberdovey and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Aberdovey property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Aberdovey property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Stoke Hall Sandstone, 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that amateur repairs had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What advice would the chartered surveyor give in their report?

Aberdovey properties that are otherwise ideal could feature issues with the roof like. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A builder from the area with solid references can provide a quote.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Dutch bond brick on this converted property needs work. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed residential property in Aberdovey feature several advantages, but they can also be affected by diverse problems, from DPC failure to badly applied render. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey and suggest potential remedies. One problem often found is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat.

For home purchasers in Aberdovey seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.
