HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rhayader and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Rhayader property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Rhayader property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Rhayader what does 'E9' include?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Rot and insect damage to conservatory joists is one defect applicable to this section.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Rhayader Home Buyers Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Rhayader property. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as minor wall cracks in the kitchen. There is a real benefit in booking a Rhayader surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
