HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Caerwys property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Caerwys property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. What is asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in Fuse box. Technically all forms (including white) are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to displace it and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Caerwys HomeBuyer report. They will note potential asbestos risks and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to verify if purchasing a home in Caerwys inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing they have on the home and its value. Property Prices are usually more than prices outside the area because of the areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise if the planned purchase looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unauthorised modifications to the property will also be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Caerwys and spotted cracks along one external wall. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the Building Survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after time has passed to make good any settlement cracks.

Subsidence-related cracks are generally wider as the crack migrates upward. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
