Home Buyers Survey in Arthog

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Arthog and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Arthog property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Arthog property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I go for a full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended eighties converted flat in Arthog?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. When planning to buy an unusual Arthog home e.g. a period flat - it is now the best RICS survey. Two to three days after a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a non prescribed format of report will be supplied to the purchaser going through any critical advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the flat.

There will be a few limitations with the survey as a local surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Arthog property, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. Furthermore flats typically add complexity. and the surveyor will only look over the actual flat, though he may advise on communal parts like the drains.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour has said subsidence could be a problem. Is this a severe concern, and what can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement will occur in recently built structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. In some older structures cracks become apparent when temperatures rise which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials contract and draw in water.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
