HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Rhiwderin and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rhiwderin property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Rhiwderin property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the house we are planning to acquire, it appeared that there is old wiring. Does a Homebuyer Report in Rhiwderin write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Rhiwderin Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This should include a visual view of the open sections of the wiring and other issues like ascertaining the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found a gap below the skirting board in the kitchen, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report review?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. Additionally, most homes in Rhiwderin are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a collapsed drainage will clear away soil supporting the building structure. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Rhiwderin surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
