HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Machynlleth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Machynlleth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Machynlleth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can the House Survey investigate this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as small cracks in the lounge wall. Steps like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a residence in Machynlleth, does the house surveyor check signs of water damage?

Flooding in Machynlleth can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flood damage occurs. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
