HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Brymbo and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Brymbo property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Brymbo property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could heavy rain have on a building, and does our RICS surveyor in Brymbo mention it? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that rainfall and the effect it can have on Brymbo houses are often overlooked by home buyers. For instance, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage may indicate that the rainwater goods are under performing. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Brymbo Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Brymbo which we wish to buy.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Commonly it is applied to underlying red brick that sets to an even finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Brymbo Building Surveys can highlight any number of problems e.g. horizontal hairline cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork.

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water below DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Remedying problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the late 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the source of maintenance problems? Does the Brymbo Property Survey cover this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Brymbo buyers. Issues range from uneven soil compaction to soil movement, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. For example, cracks along the lounge ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Brymbo, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.
