HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Dolgellau and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Dolgellau property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Dolgellau property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Dolgellau , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the surveyor in Dolgellau give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like mould. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A Dolgellau builder can provide an estimate.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a property in Dolgellau, LL40 for £142, 113. What considerations will a Dolgellau RICS surveyor evaluate when conducting a home buyers survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can impact on the price of property from location of nearby transport links to the property's proximity to a conservation area. One method is to benchmark prices values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £133, 313, which is £8, 800 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £136, 300. Bryn Cemlyn Cottage, Ganllwyd, Dolgellau, Gwynedd, Gwynedd, LL40 2HL a detached property was purchased for £135, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Edwardian terrace is badly worn - what should we do?

Brick flats be subject to a range of defects. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey along with recommendations. A serious concern is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs.

For home purchasers in Dolgellau seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
