Looking for a Home Survey ? Which of the 3 should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in St Asaph and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the St Asaph property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the St Asaph property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the St Asaph property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a St Asaph Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

English Heritage

I am intending to buy a building close to Bedd-Y-Cawr Hill Fort , will this affect the property's value?

Bedd-Y-Cawr Hill Fort is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can add to the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other local monuments of interest include Bont Newydd Cave, Cae Gwyn Cave and Coed Bron-Fawr Round Barrow.. A RICS valuer will consider many local criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in St Asaph. Refer to the English Heritage website for further details on Bedd-Y-Cawr Hill Fort.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a St Asaph building. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Properties in St Asaph will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in St Asaph. What should we look for?

Properties in St Asaph in otherwise fine condition could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. From purlins to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft will be taken into account. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
