HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Mold and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Mold property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Mold property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be an issue for Mold house? Does the HomeBuyer Report cover this, and what defects will be reported on?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Mold buyers. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to

the property. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Mold properties at risk, and does a Mold surveyor check possible flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Guardian), and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Building Survey may advise on urgent repairs.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Mold house enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect does rain have on our new property? Will the building survey report on this? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be disruptive to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on homes in Mold are not given more thought by home buyers. As an example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are at risk. This can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. If left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
