HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Towyn and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Towyn property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Towyn property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Towyn House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that the bathroom floor was uneven, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey reveal?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting flat and could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient.

Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Towyn, what warnings would a surveyor in Towyn give for homes constructed with brick?

Brick-constructed residential property in Towyn demonstrate several benefits, but they can also experience several common problems, such as sulphate expansion. A defect requiring immediate attention is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. M A Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01763 230462 or 13 Russet Way, Melbourn, Royston, SG8 6HF.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.

If the Towyn surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to on guard for when buying a converted flat in Towyn in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing they have with the property and its value. The price of property is typically greater due to them retaining original features. However a growing number have fallen into a state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors can be expected to advise you if the home is/might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved modifications to the property will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
