About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Pencader

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Pencader and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Pencader property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Pencader property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In the HomeBuyer Report what can 'E2 - Roof coverings' cover?

A fairly common example may be loose or corroded roof fasteners or screws. Roof coverings are inspected by the surveyor, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any buyers in Pencader. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a property's foundations? What should we expect a Pencader Building Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your qualified surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters for instance, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house for example - flue/chimney maintenance. Your Pencader RICS surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings and will not carry out any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
