HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dolwyddelan and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Dolwyddelan property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Dolwyddelan property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Dolwyddelan. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick-built houses demonstrate several benefits, but they will also show signs of numerous defects, including frost damaged pointing and cracks. Your RICS surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One problem often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. L & G Bricklayin Services Ltd at 6 Bamburgh Rd, Hartlepool, TS27 3JR on 07828 949392.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to be aware of if intending to buy a flat in Dolwyddelan inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Dolwyddelan are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and the effect they have on the building. Values is generally higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the property looks to be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Dolwyddelan Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the property should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I expect to move into, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets, does a the surveyor report on the electrics?

When performing a Dolwyddelan Building Survey your surveyor should report on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. Your surveyor should also give detail on issues like examining the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Dolwyddelan.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (5 if renting out).
