Home Buyers Survey in Penrhyn Bay

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Penrhyn Bay and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Penrhyn Bay property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Penrhyn Bay property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a cottage with stone walls create more problems? What should we look in to?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Problems which impact stone-built properties can vary greatly, with issues like cracks being quote common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet weather have on a property in Penrhyn Bay? Also, if there is a problem, will they be expensive to fix?

Both in Penrhyn Bay, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on buildings is not given more thought by buyers. If you have only visited the property you intend to purchase in the Summer, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include mildew or damp in the roof. Poor drainage can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

The good news is that this is generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials for example ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire blankets.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken on no account to move asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Penrhyn Bay Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Penrhyn Bay HomeBuyer report. Your Penrhyn Bay surveyor should report on possible asbestos and should advise accordingly.
