HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Hawarden and which is cheaper?

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

If the Hawarden property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hawarden property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a Hawarden house and the vendor has made us aware that it has been built with Cotswold stone. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Grinshill Sandstone to Monks Park Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Hawarden homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Property surveys should give some

repair guidance, like monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a building near to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert refuse disposal. No one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Hawarden RICS surveyors will flag up any structural defects resulting from the site. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Flintshire Local Authority and advise you .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a garage) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Hawarden market and other things about the property for instance: general condition The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
