Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Pentre Halkyn and which would be the cheapest?

If the Pentre Halkyn property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Pentre Halkyn. What will we need to take notice of when buying an old building? Will the house's age be a concern?

For houses in Pentre Halkyn built before the 20th Century, age can create issues for homeowners. Pentre Halkyn property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Pentre Halkyn listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. If you are uncertain, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can create issues for houses in Pentre Halkyn. Does the Pentre Halkyn HomeBuyer Report cover this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Pentre Halkyn can have unwanted consequences, with subsidence being a common example. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. 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! When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Pentre Halkyn, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Isolated patches of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be brown asbestos toilet cistern in existence at the property. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as soil vent pipes.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in rain water goods.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to move it and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Pentre Halkyn Surveyors do not test for asbestos during a Pentre Halkyn building survey. However they will report on possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
