HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Rhymney and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Rhymney property is an apartment, 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 carry out any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Rhymney property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Rhymney and saw evidence of there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but kitchen floor dips noticeably, could this be evidence of subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence issues does the Rhymney Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new structure after six months in order to repair settlement damage.

In clay soil regions, a dry spell will lower the water table. This dries out and shrinks the clay, putting a strain on the foundations and causing movement. 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. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming,

and inconvenient. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Rhymney surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Rhymney include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Rhymney building will include an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Rhymney market and other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Further Rhymney conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Rhymney house. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. 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. , such as sticking window frames. A Rhymney surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
