Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bangor

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if buying a home constructed from standard materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bangor

    The Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Bangor) will also be carried out by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard property such as stone wall properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bangor

    This is an impartial valuation . This report is usually chosen by cash purchasers or anyone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bangor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Bangor property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Bangor property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate gutters? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Bangor and across the country, but wet weather and the effect it can have on Bangor buildings are rarely paid due attention. For instance, corroded downspouts suggest that the downspouts are damaged. This could then result in penetrating damp.

The good news is that problems with drains are generally easy to repair, if identified early.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles. What will our home surveyor check when the home is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by buyers in Bangor who are aware that property could feature roofing woes, like bowing beams. From tie beams to rafters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Amlwch Felt Roofing Contractors of Llwyn/Ffordd Tan Y Bryn, Amlwch, LL68 9BD on 01407 831849 for details.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can be a source of difficulty for homes in Bangor. Can your Building Survey investigate this?

Whether a home was built in 1704 or 2004, factors as varied as heavy rainfall or rising damp can create significant expense for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. For example, minor wall cracks in the drawing room may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Bangor surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.
