Which Building Survey should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Conwy property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Conwy property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Conwy. Is there any brick maintenance tips we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Conwy flats demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also suffer from several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Dell William George & Sons Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01225 761326 or 9 Bond Street, Trowbridge, BA14 0AS.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the surveyor check water damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Channel 4 News), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger. In addition, the house survey may recommend maintenance.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. Bricks that are too close to the soil level without proper damp-proofing is one defect applicable to this section. Severe defects impacting the Conwy house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a home. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Conwy house or flat. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
