HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nannerch and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Nannerch property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Nannerch property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Nannerch property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can a Nannerch HomeBuyer Report consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as small cracks in the lounge floor. 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. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate any flooding damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a residence will be secure against floods, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The home surveyor may ask the vendor about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we are intending to move into, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will the surveyor write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Nannerch Home Survey a surveyor should usually remark on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a hazardous state of repair. A professional surveyor will also possible problems relating to things like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters. Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.
