HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Brymbo and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Brymbo property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Brymbo property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. In order to determine the value of the property the surveyor will pair local Brymbo market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation. Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions like there being no significant defects. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any Brymbo environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

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

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Brymbo may be an issue. Is this a urgent danger, and what possible solutions are to available to remedy this?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. Many homes in Brymbo are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of 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.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 18th Century warehouse conversion. Will repairs costs be higher?

Many buyers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. For houses in Brymbo built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Brymbo houses featuring traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may be required.
