HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Barmouth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barmouth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Barmouth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about vermin in the area - What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damaged Render

What will a Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Barmouth that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to a smooth flat finish. The finish is very beautiful and is often found on Victorian homes. The composition is similar to plaster or mortar. it can be problematic and Barmouth Home Buyers Suveys sometimes detail any number of problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Remedying problems with stucco can be costly as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Diagonal bond upkeep guidance - can a Barmouth property surveyor assist? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed conversions in Barmouth do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes, but they can also experience a range of defects, from weathering to sulphate expansion. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention.

Barmouth home purchasers may need to consider that a good selection of methods and styles may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
