Home Buyers Survey in Hirwaun

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hirwaun and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Hirwaun property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hirwaun property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the property in Hirwaun we plan to buy. Should we get a house surveyor?

Hirwaun houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of insecticides.

If you strongly suspect an issue with woodworm, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a home next to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial waste material. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include structurally instability. Potential health problems such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Rhondda Cynon Taf Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your qualified surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter for example, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures, for instance balanced flues. A Hirwaun qualified surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings nor will they run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Hirwaun home with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the roofing be hard to organise?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by Hirwaun buyers who are aware that property can be blighted by cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. From wind braces to fascias, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hirwaun, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing specialist with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.
