Home Buyers Survey in Newcastle Emlyn

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Newcastle Emlyn and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Newcastle Emlyn property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Newcastle Emlyn property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a residence in Newcastle Emlyn, does the building survey search for flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive floods, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency home in Newcastle Emlyn.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really dense solid render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is very appealing and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. It is very similar to plaster in its constituency. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Newcastle Emlyn commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering Stucco problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
