HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Cefn Mawr and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Cefn Mawr property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Cefn Mawr property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Cefn Mawr, does the Cefn Mawr surveyor search for any flooding?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Cefn Mawr in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

No recent Cefn Mawr flood alerts have been announced (source: Environment Agency).

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the justification in spending a bit more on a full structural survey if buying a substantially modified end of terrace property near Cefn Mawr instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often called a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, this survey is no longer offered as it has been re-titled by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the right name is now the Building Survey. When intending to buy an altered Cefn Mawr home like a dilapidated house - this is now the most suitable property survey. The written report will typically give full and frequently critical professional advice in relation to the property's construction materials along with any technical details a thorough inspection of the accessible areas. There are a few limitations with any survey as a local surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Cefn Mawr property e.g. removing roof space contents. Outside buildings should be surveyed.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a flat close to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include methane gas generation .

Cefn Mawr surveyors will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Wrexham Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
