HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Glyn Ceiriog and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Glyn Ceiriog property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Glyn Ceiriog property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could high levels of rainfall have on our new house in Glyn Ceiriog? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rain and the effect it can have on a residence are not considered. If you have only seen the new home in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden. Poor drainage can lead to penetrating damp.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 17th Century coast house. What consequences will the thatched roof have on maintenance?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a Victorian home. For houses in Glyn Ceiriog built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Glyn Ceiriog homes employing traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced. Mention this to your property surveyor for more information.

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give examples of an red light rating defects affecting windows?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. An example defect for this is an inoperable sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
