HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Llangollen and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llangollen property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Llangollen property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Llangollen? Will the Llangollen Home Survey consider this?

Whether a property was built in 17010 or 20010, factors as varied as termites or mould can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. 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. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Llangollen property's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Llangollen surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the value of the property the surveyor will refer to local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and use other assumptions, for example no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't 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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any costly legal problems such as no troublesome covenants. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Further Llangollen assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Llangollen environmental problems like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Llangollen.

Stucco is just a form of solid render. Typically it is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly attractive and is often found on Regency properties. It can contain lime in it as well as a grid underneath to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Llangollen Building Surveys commonly detail issues which might include trapped water resulting in internal damp problems which need attention. Other potential problems may be when the application is taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-covering problems may be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.
