About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ystradgynlais

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ystradgynlais and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ystradgynlais property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Ystradgynlais property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Ystradgynlais.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian buildings. It is similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Ystradgynlais Building Surveys commonly report any number of problems such as when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-covering problems can be costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I want to buy, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - will a Ystradgynlais survey report on the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Ystradgynlais the home surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. He or she is expected to focus on things like the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey. Inspecting the documents from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should form part of the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the old property. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does a RICS surveyor look for?

Residential property in Ystradgynlais in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious roofing woes, like ponding. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Ystradgynlais, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing specialist with good feedback can provide a quote.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Ystradgynlais. What will we need to look out for when buying an older property? Will the age of the house be a concern?

A property's age can worry purchasers. Properties constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.If you plan to make alterations to a period house, discuss options with the Ystradgynlais surveyor for more detail.
