About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Pontprennau

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Pontprennau and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Pontprennau property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Pontprennau property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will my RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency home in Pontprennau.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is very appealing and is/was found on Victorian and Regency properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Pontprennau surveyors frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when movement of the wall results in cracks. Other issues could result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering problems may be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can the Home Buyers Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Pontprennau buyers, with subsidence being a common example. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the living room floor to a sticking door in the living room. There is a real benefit in booking a Pontprennau surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
