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 .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property in Rhymney we plan to buy. Should we get a property surveyor?

Buyers in Rhymney should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning. The home 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.

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Rhymney, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Rotation of beams in a conservatory roof is an example.

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.
