HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Llanberis and which is cheaper?

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

If the Llanberis property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Llanberis property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Llanberis , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Which issues relating to the home's roof will be considered?

This often causes anxiety for house purchasers who know how costly roofing work can be. Many properties will suffer damage to the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to dormers. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A builder with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for doing a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if buying a abandoned townhouse?

Although often still called Full Structural Surveys - the correct term for this type of survey is now Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid century or later unmodified Llanberis house of normal construction materials. A RICS Building Survey is certainly the right choice in relation to the house mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is sent to you specifying thorough and crucial professional advice on the construction and uses of the house. There are one or two no go areas with any survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Llanberis house - such as removing loft contents.

Damaged Render

What defects will the RICS Surveyor examine on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Llanberis that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat solid render. Usually it is applied to brick to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very aesthetic and is/was found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be prone to defect and Llanberis surveyors sometimes detail any number of problems such as horizontal hairline cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing Stucco problems can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.
