Home Buyers Survey in Llangefni

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Llangefni and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Llangefni property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Llangefni property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has said subsidence has been worth checking affecting the property. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related matters will the Llangefni Surveyor examine?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will often occur in more modern structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Many homes in Llangefni are constructed from a range of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Many buildings develop superficial cracks in a wall, due to humidity or temperature changes. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. 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. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Llangefni, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the home surveyor search for indications of flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and owning a home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The chartered surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't see the argument to get a full structural survey if purchasing a dilapidated mid terrace house in Llangefni as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Although recurrently referred to as Full Structural Surveys by many they have actually been reclassified by RICS as Building Surveys You would be best advised to get a Building Survey for the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid century or later unmodified home assembled from conventional construction materials.

You should be aware of one or two restrictions exist with a property survey as the surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the property or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to investigate rainwater goods, and does our house surveyor in Llangefni mention it? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in Llangefni and across the country, but the impact heavy rainfall can have on your home is rarely paid due attention by property buyers. If you have only been to the house you are buying in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Blocked rainwater goods can result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
