HomeBuyer Report

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the New Quay property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the New Quay property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a New Quay house. What can we do?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as rats as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to pest problems can include professional cleaning. If you believe rats, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will your New Quay Property Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for New Quay buyers. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in New Quay? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rainfall can have on properties is not given more thought. For instance, mildew in the attic indicate that the gutters are at risk, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
