HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Arthog and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Arthog property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Arthog property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a building proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including hazardous waste material. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins .

Arthog RICS surveyors will flag up structural problems linked to the site. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Gwynedd Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I go for a full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended eighties converted flat in Arthog?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. When planning to buy an unusual Arthog home e.g. a period flat - it is now the best RICS survey. Two to three days after a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a non prescribed format of report will be supplied to the purchaser going through any critical advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the flat.

There will be a few limitations with the survey as a local surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Arthog property, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. Furthermore flats typically add complexity. and the surveyor will only look over the actual flat, though he may advise on communal parts like the drains.

Deteriorated timber

On a Arthog HomeBuyer Report what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

One example issue could be the suspected use fibre-cement or asbestos cement. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. The type and condition of such components will be covered. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert.
