HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Llanallgo and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Llanallgo property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Llanallgo property's general condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Llanallgo? Does a Llanallgo Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a measurable contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like a difficult-to-open bathroom window can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies.

Taking precautions, such as even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

House Prices

There is a property in LL78 in Llanallgo on with a local agent for £87, 200. What things does a Llanallgo chartered surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Llanallgo ?

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £83, 000 - £4, 200 less than £87, 200. Pen Y Rhyd, Brynteg, Isle Of Anglesey, Isle Of Anglesey, LL78 7JF a detached property was purchased for £83, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Llanallgo property survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Heave is less common, and can be caused when a tree dies or is uprooted.

Subsidence-related cracks are on average wider as the crack migrates upward. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
