About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ogmore Vale

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ogmore Vale and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ogmore Vale property is a flat, 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 carry out any alterations on the Ogmore Vale property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Ogmore Vale property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the building in Ogmore Vale we're buying, but we are not certain - What should we do?

Scare stories about building infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as mice as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. Signs may not be obvious, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Ogmore Vale, and can a Ogmore Vale Ogmore Vale surveyor investigate any water damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including seepage through walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Ogmore Vale Surveyor be focused on, on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Ogmore Vale that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a form of render. Commonly it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings for example. it can be problematic and Ogmore Vale Building Surveys commonly highlight issues for instance when settlement of the wall can lead to cracking of the surface.

Another example of problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
