Home Buyers Survey in Llanwrda

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Llanwrda property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Llanwrda property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will your Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Llanwrda.

Stucco is actually just a kind of solid render. Typically stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly attractive and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. It is very similar to plaster. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Llanwrda Home Buyers Suveys commonly discover defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found a gap below the skirting board in the garage, is this subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will often occur in new buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. In some older buildings cracks become apparent when temperatures rise which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials contract and draw in water.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Llanwrda. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermine foundations to cause subsidence, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by plant life. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
