Home Buyers Survey in Minera

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Minera and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Minera property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Minera property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the justification to choose the full structural survey when acquiring a converted detached house in Minera rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often called the Structural Survey by many, this survey is now defunct and and has been given a new title by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct name is now the Building Survey. It is now the correct home survey if purchasing an altered home like a period house in Minera. It summarises in depth and significant professional advice about the property's construction in addition to any important technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including inert refuse. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include chemicals like dioxins .

Surveys in Minera will examine structural problems resulting from the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Wrexham Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To ascertain the market value the valuer should use awareness of the Minera property market and other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Further Minera assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental concerns like railways, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Building Survey investigate this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Issues range from uneven soil compaction to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Minera house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Steps like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a house. Do we need a RICS surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber.
