HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Aberbargoed and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Aberbargoed property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Aberbargoed property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Home Buyers Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects, with shrinking of clay soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I should check out if intending to buy a converted house in Aberbargoed in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and any bearing they have on the property and its value. Property Prices are usually enhanced because of them being in good order. However many of them are falling into have fallen into poor condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise you if the planned purchase might be classified as such and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping modifications to the property will also be noted, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Aberbargoed and saw evidence of a gap below the skirting board in the basement. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the property survey investigate?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Aberbargoed should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Cracks that appear suddenly may suggest movement and subsidence. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
