About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gwaelod Y Garth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Gwaelod Y Garth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Gwaelod Y Garth 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 made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Gwaelod Y Garth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a cottage in Gwaelod Y Garth. What effect will the house's age have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. A property's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Gwaelod Y Garth houses built with traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with the Gwaelod Y Garth surveyor for more detail.

Damaged Render

What will the Gwaelod Y Garth Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Gwaelod Y Garth which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a specific type of render. Commonly it is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is very attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Gwaelod Y Garth surveyors can discover issues for example, when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other issues might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-applying problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
