Home Buyers Survey in Cwmbran

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cwmbran and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Cwmbran 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, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cwmbran property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Cwmbran, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the surveyor give in their report?

Houses in Cwmbran with no other major issues will suffer difficulties with the roof. From collar beams to eaves, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a building proximate to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems for example abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Cwmbran will examine any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Torfaen Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful material. Some types are found in the building materials including pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe insulation.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Your Cwmbran surveyor should report on potential asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Ham Hill stone. Which major issues should we consider?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. This is monitored by the local council, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. 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.
