HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rhosllanerchrugog and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Rhosllanerchrugog property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Rhosllanerchrugog property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1985-built house in Rhosllanerchrugog and found a gap below the skirting board in the garage. What options are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes will wash away the earth protecting the building's foundations. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create

issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Stone block wall damage

Will a converted barn with stone walls generate high upkeep costs? What should we look in to?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Will a surveyor look into this?

Property are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. The surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
