HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Snowdonia and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Snowdonia property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Snowdonia property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons to choose a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when considering a neglected house?

Albeit very often referred to as Structural Surveys by many - they have been reclassified as Building Surveys You should select a Building Survey in relation to the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post fifties unmodified Snowdonia house assembled from conventional building materials i.e. brick/tile. Be aware that some limitations exist with any survey because a RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the Snowdonia house nor can they assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we should verify when intending to buy a property in Snowdonia inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Snowdonia need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation may have with the home. The price of property is typically higher which is down to the areas resisting change. However many areas have fallen into poor condition for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are trained to advise whether the building could be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Snowdonia house is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Snowdonia brick-walled houses can be affected by both minor and serious issues, ranging from cracks to inadequate damp-proofing. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Thornton Nigel should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01752 310916 or 30 Clittaford View, Plymouth, PL6 6TW.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
