HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Rhosesmor and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Rhosesmor property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Rhosesmor property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would need to be conscious of when purchasing a flat in Rhosesmor in conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Rhosesmor surveyors must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the property. Property values will be higher because of them being in their original state.

Surveyors will advise you if the planned purchase is or might be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping developments to the building will also be reported in the Rhosesmor survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Rhosesmor builder has said subsidence might be a concern. What subsidence information does the Rhosesmor Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes will experience cracking at some stage. New buildings in Rhosesmor and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

In clay soil regions, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This can dry out, shrinking the clay, putting a strain on the foundations and which causes subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which begins to rot, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a building proximate to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Rhosesmor surveyors will notice structural problems connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Flintshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
