About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Llanarth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Llanarth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Llanarth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Llanarth property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor review?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence.

Subsidence-related cracks are in most cases thinner towards the bottom of the crack, if it runs up a wall. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of asbestos fire doors in the flat. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types may be in building materials for example insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in Fuse box.

All forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken not to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the survey and will recommend professional testing.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Llanarth. Will access to the roofing be difficult to arrange?

Llanarth properties that are otherwise ideal will suffer roof maintenance problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormers. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing contractor in Llanarth with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
