HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Porthmadog and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Porthmadog property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Porthmadog property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Porthmadog. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey check for possible water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a residential property will be secure against floods; sensible owners and property purchasers in Porthmadog are right to consider precautions. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Porthmadog area likely to affect the home in Porthmadog also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk.

Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home in Porthmadog is at risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that wet rot had been a concern. What should we check when the building is surveyed?

Property in Porthmadog in otherwise fine condition can often hide mould, among a range of other roofing issues. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to trusses. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A Porthmadog contractor can provide an estimate.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are interested to acquire, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will a Porthmadog survey report on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Homebuyer Report in Porthmadog the surveyor should usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor condition. A Home surveyor should also things like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or if there are residual circuit breakers. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.
