HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Rhos On Sea and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Rhos On Sea property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Rhos On Sea property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could rainfall have on our new house?

Both in Rhos On Sea, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on a home is usually overlooked by purchasers. Signs that gutters are under performing include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, drainage problems are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent warned us that access to the home's roof could be time consuming to arrange, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our Rhos On Sea surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is often asked by Rhos On Sea buyers who know that homes will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as mould. From purlins to collar ties, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Rhos On Sea, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Rhos On Sea, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
