HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Llanwrda property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Llanwrda property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Llanwrda Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I need to be wary of when intending to buy a flat in Llanwrda in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Llanwrda are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any connection they have with the building and its value. House prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them being unspoilt.

RICS surveyors are expected advise if the house looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Llanwrda Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised adjustments to the building should be commented on, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found a gap below the skirting board in the garage, is this subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will often occur in new buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. In some older buildings cracks become apparent when temperatures rise which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials contract and draw in water.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Llanwrda. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermine foundations to cause subsidence, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by plant life. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Llanwrda property with a loft conversion. What aspects of the loft will be considered?

This is a common concern for Llanwrda buyers. A large number of properties could feature issues with the roof. From purlins to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in Llanwrda can provide one.
