Home Buyers Survey in Aberystwyth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aberystwyth and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Aberystwyth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Aberystwyth property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we want to move into we think we noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Aberystwyth Homebuyer Report advise on any faults with the electrics?

During a Homebuyer Report in Aberystwyth your surveyor will typically report on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. The RICS surveyor is required to concerns such as confirming that the supplementary bonding is in the usual place.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Aberystwyth.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest that a PIR be conducted every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been told that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for homes in Aberystwyth. Will a Aberystwyth Home Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Aberystwyth home. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like a difficult-to-open garage window or minor wall cracks in the garage can be early indications of very serious structural issues.

Taking precautions, such as monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
