About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Glynneath

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Glynneath and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Glynneath property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Glynneath property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Glynneath HomeBuyer Report what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be investigated. Insulation problems is an example. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give property buyers indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor advise on the safety of the gas installations?

Your RICS surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) at the home, as well as gas affiliated installations such as chimney breasts. Your Glynneath chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Gas Safe certified Neath Port Talbot based local companies include James Morgan Plumbing & Heating of 27, Havard Jones Close, Neath, West Glamorgan Tel. 07843870460 and M Collins Heating and Plumbing of 15 Southgate Street, Neath, West Glamorgan Tel. 01639776460.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are obligated to commission appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the vendor has suggested that it has been built with Ham Hill stone. Which issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Penderyn Quarry, Penderyn, Aberdare, Mid Glamorgan, CF44 0TX, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01685 813179 for more information.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a barn conversion in Glynneath. Will the age of the property be a problem?

For houses in Glynneath built before the 20th Century, age can create difficulties for an owner, and Glynneath homes employing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Glynneath's conservation areas, Traditional materials may be required. This may be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. Mention this to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
