About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dunvant

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Dunvant and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Dunvant property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Dunvant property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a property's foundations? Does the House Survey cover this?

There are a number of concerns associated with clay soil. Specific issues include soil movement. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like warped window frames in the bathroom can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. There is a real benefit in booking a Dunvant surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

House Prices

How much is a good price to pay for a property in for and What things will a Dunvant RICS chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Dunvant ?

There are many factors which could affect the price of property e.g. the state of repair of the property or the internal layout. .

The best way for you to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

A professional surveyor will always attend the house as well as allowing for the countless issues that might affect values.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian home in Dunvant.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a sort of flat finish render. Typically it is layered over brick to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian homes. it can be problematic and Dunvant Home Buyers Suveys sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick. Other issues might be when dampness below DPCs which results in the render detaching. Resolving problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 18th Century dovecot in Dunvant. What impact will the property's age have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can create issues for homeowners, and Dunvant houses built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you have doubts, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail.
