HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Fishguard and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fishguard property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Fishguard property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

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

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Fishguard? Can we expect the Fishguard Home Buyers Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact, with moisture changes in the soil and swelling of the soil being relatively common. 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.. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Fishguard house's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Fishguard, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report inquire into possible flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property in Fishguard, such as via patio doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Fishguard building will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine the valuation your RICS valuer will factor in depth understanding of the Fishguard market and other things relating to the property e.g. size The valuer will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Fishguard environmental problems like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
