Home Buyers Survey in Betws Y Coed

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Betws Y Coed and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Betws Y Coed property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Betws Y Coed property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Betws Y Coed RICS surveyor inquire into indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are in danger of flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The surveyor may ask the occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Betws Y Coed surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage)

A Homebuyer Report on a Betws Y Coed property will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To estimate the valuation your surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Betws Y Coed market and other factors relating to the property e.g. size Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and use key assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal problems for example building regulations having been complied. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or connection to sewers, are made in addition to Betws Y Coed environmental issues like local Betws Y Coed industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the estate agent has confirmed that it has been partially constructed with Kentish Rag stone. What matters should we be aware of?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for Betws Y Coed homes with stone walls. Defects such as deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled Betws Y Coed homes. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a brown asbestos coating spayed on beams affecting the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break it and expert advice should be sought without delay. You should never attempt to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
