HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hirwaun and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Hirwaun property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hirwaun property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

What factors will surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Hirwaun on a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect the price of property for example the number of bedrooms or the over all desirability of the street. .

The most reliable way for you to get an impartial property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the justification to get the full structural survey when investing in a defective end of terrace bungalow near Hirwaun rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Although commonly and incorrectly referred to as Full Structural Surveys by many, these surveys are now called RICS Building Survey A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Hirwaun house of standard construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. If buying an unusual house like a tatty house, the Building Survey is the right survey to choose to opt for. Subsequent to a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a written report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the prospective purchaser giving any salient insight concerning the construction materials used on the house. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey because a qualified surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Hirwaun building e.g. removing the contents of cupboards.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Hirwaun houses built on clay soil can experience problems. Can a Hirwaun HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Factors from rising damp to acid rain can cause significant expense for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Specific issues include soil movement. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hirwaun house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. Isolated patches of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
