HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Llanrhystud and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Llanrhystud property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Llanrhystud property's condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Llanrhystud surveyor consider any flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN); sensible owners and purchasers in Llanrhystud are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a Llanrhystud home through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Llanrhystud home enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1990-built house in Llanrhystud and saw wall cracks in the living room. What subsidence information does the Llanrhystud Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Many houses develop superficial cracks in a plaster decoration, due to settlement. In serious weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. 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, with no underpinning required. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Defective door frame

For the Llanrhystud HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. A door frame which has been installed back-to-front is one defect applicable to this section.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Llanrhystud residence's value.
