HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Denbighshire and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Denbighshire property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Denbighshire property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am planning to lease it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does the Denbighshire surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When preparing a Denbighshire Homebuyer Report a surveyor should comment on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor condition. The RICS surveyor is required to things like confirming the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Denbighshire.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Denbighshire, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the closet. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Properties are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, pest problems can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause difficulties for property in Denbighshire. What should we expect a Denbighshire House Survey to include?

Clay soil can create several issues for home owners. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Denbighshire surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
