HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Llanfyllin and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Llanfyllin property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Llanfyllin property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic waste. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include structurally instability. Potential health issues such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Llanfyllin will consider structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Powys Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we look into gutters? Will the Llanfyllin home buyers survey report on this?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact high levels of rainfall can have on homes is overlooked. If you have only seen the home in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden.

In most cases, problems with drains are generally easy to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent has mentioned subsidence could be a concern. Is this a serious concern, and what subsidence-related matters will the Llanfyllin Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be rectified.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and slip down the incline. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. 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. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
