HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Llanarth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Llanarth property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a Llanarth surveyor check the serviceability of the gas heaters?

A chartered surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the building, as well as gas related appliances like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Any external fittings will not however be removed. Of course, gas can be fatal and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have read that Llanarth buildings built on clay soil can experience problems. Can my Building Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with moisture changes in the soil and soil swelling being relatively common. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as sticking window frames. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Llanarth, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.

Deteriorated timber

In a Llanarth HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be covered. Metal sidings which are not earthed correctly is one example.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
