Home Buyers Survey in Merthyr Tydfil

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Merthyr Tydfil and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Merthyr Tydfil property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Merthyr Tydfil property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos?

Buildings built prior to 1985 will in all probability contain some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Some types may be in building materials for example pipe insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in paper lining. It is found all over the world including South Africa.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of asbestos may be costly but must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note suspected asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

English Heritage

I am planning to purchase a building close to Coed Cae Round Cairns , will this affect the property's value?

Coed Cae Round Cairns is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance often enhance the desirability of an area. Examples of other nearby sites of interest are Dyke 315M E Of Tyla-Glas, Penydarren Tram Road and Platform Houses On Coly Uchaf.. The surveyor will include many regional factors during the home buyers survey in Merthyr Tydfil. Visit the English Heritage site for further information on Coed Cae Round Cairns.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Merthyr Tydfil Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco regency home in Merthyr Tydfil that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a kind of smooth render. Typically it is applied to red brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The finish is highly attractive and is common on some Regency properties. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped water resulting in the surface falling away requiring costly repairs

Another example of problems may include attack from sulphates or salts sucked out of brickwork. Re-applying Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.
