Home Buyers Survey in Rhayader

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rhayader and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Rhayader property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Rhayader property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks along the lounge ceiling when we last viewed the home. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor reveal?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Cracks that appear without warning may be a strong indication of subsidence. On the inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. 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. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
