Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bodelwyddan and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bodelwyddan property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bodelwyddan property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the mid 30s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Will a Home Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Bodelwyddan buyers. Specific issues include soil movement. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as a hard-to-open bedroom door. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. 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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Bodelwyddan and are looking for a house with stretcher bond walls. What suggestions can a property surveyor in Bodelwyddan make?

Brick Bodelwyddan conversions will show signs of considerable issues. These can include weathering or sulphate expansion. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. Contact White Tony for a repairs estimate at 01730 895128 or Park Cottage East/Hawkley Rd, Liss, GU33 6JP.

Bodelwyddan home purchasers may need to consider that a good selection of methods and styles have been used across the country for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Consider renegotiating the price of the Bodelwyddan property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we expect to acquire it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will the Bodelwyddan surveyor advise the electrics?

When conducting a Bodelwyddan Building Survey the home surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This will include a general check of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox and other things like reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters or the whereabouts of the consumer unit. Verifying the location of the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Bodelwyddan.
