HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Benllech property is a flat or maisonette, 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 are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Benllech property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Benllech Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Benllech? Can your House Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Visible results may be anything from cracked plaster to sticking doors. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the

building. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Benllech, and does our RICS surveyor in Benllech mention it?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the impact wet weather can have on houses is usually overlooked by home buyers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

External walls

For the Benllech HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

Note that concealed elements will not be considered. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. Bowing, leaning or bulging brick walls would be reported here, for example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.
