HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ruthin and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Ruthin property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Ruthin property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I get a full structural survey prior to buying a poor condition forties penthouse maisonette in Ruthin?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. When buying a modified home, for example a neglected maisonette in Ruthin, this is now the most appropriate survey to choose. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a non period unmodified maisonette of conventional construction materials. Subsequent to a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report is sent to the client going through in depth and salient information concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be certain provisos with

any survey because a surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Ruthin maisonette for example removing secured panels. See the survey differences article for more detail on property surveys.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Does the Ruthin House Survey cover this?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for home owners. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything from widening cracks to a hard-to-open drawing room door.

Taking precautions, such as taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
