HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Trefnant and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Trefnant property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Trefnant property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Trefnant Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a farmstead. What consequences will the property's cruck frame have on repairs?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a barn conversion. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. Built in around 1578, Dolbelydir in Trefnant is an example of a traditional Post Medieval-period country house.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to on guard for when planning to buy an extended house in Trefnant near a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Trefnant surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of local factors and any bearing they have with the home and its value. Property values tends to be enhanced because of them retaining original features. However many of them are falling into have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are expected note if the home looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does rainfall have on a building in Trefnant? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that damp weather and the effect it can have on homes in Trefnant are not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

In most cases, these defects are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are disregarded, 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.
