HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kinmel Bay and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Kinmel Bay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kinmel Bay property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent each defect requires attention.

In Kinmel Bay, examples include loose or missing tiles. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, will be investigated.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home in Kinmel Bay and the estate agent has told us that it has been partially constructed with Beer stone. What matters must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Problems which impact stone-built Kinmel Bay houses can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated render being quote common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Repair advice often includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Kinmel Bay property may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
