HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Llanrwst and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Llanrwst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Llanrwst property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Llanrwst that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a type of solid render. Typically stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. It is very aesthetic and was often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is very like mortar in its nature. It may have lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Llanrwst sometimes show any number of problems e.g. when stucco is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems may result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Llanrwst home with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for Llanrwst home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like dry rot. From roof battens to dormer windows, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

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 quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.

House Prices

There is a house located in LL26 with an asking price of £175, 767. What considerations will a Llanrwst RICS chartered surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Llanrwst ?

There are many factors that can affect property values e.g. the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or overall area pricing. It is useful to consider prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £171, 467, which is £4, 300 less than the selling price. Hafod Y Wennol, Llanddoged, Llanrwst, Conwy, Conwy, LL26 0TY a detached home sold for £585, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. A RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).
