HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Pencader and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Pencader property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Pencader property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1750 in Pencader? Will maintenance costs be higher?

Many purchasers would like to own a home with character. For houses in Pencader built before the 20th Century, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Pencader property featuring traditional methods can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example insulating board. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in coatings spayed on beams.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it and professional advice should be sought without delay. On no account try to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a property's foundations? What should we expect a Pencader Building Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
