HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Flintshire and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Flintshire property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Flintshire property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause problems for property in Flintshire. Can a Flintshire Property Survey investigate this?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for property owners. 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.. Signs like a hard-to-open lounge door or small cracks in the lounge ceiling can be early indications of very serious structural issues. A Flintshire surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly

concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Flintshire structure with a loft conversion. What does the home surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. Houses across Flintshire can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer problems like poor insulation. From dormers to tie beams, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

House Prices

There is a property in Flintshire. What factors will qualified surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Flintshire ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from the price of property such as the homes proximity to contaminated land or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. .

The best way for you to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Flintshire which includes a formal valuation as a core component.
