HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bedwas and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Bedwas property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Bedwas property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent mentioned that the had been issues with pooling water on the roof. What does the RICS surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for buyers. Homes throughout Bedwas can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From fascias to roof battens, every element of the roof should be investigated. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Bedwas, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the house surveyor investigate flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at risk of floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs.

Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Bedwas might be an issue. What subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey examine?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and start to slip downhill. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
