HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Miskin and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Miskin property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Miskin property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Miskin? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be disruptive to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is rarely paid due attention by property buyers.

Signs that drainage are under performing include rotten roofing elements.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a property in Miskin. Can we expect the Miskin Home Buyers Survey to mention this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Drought, for instance, can have a pronounced contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the living room wall, to complete structural failure. A Miskin surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property in Miskin we plan to buy - Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Miskin purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides.
