Home Buyers Survey in Bangor

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bangor and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Bangor property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Bangor property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Bangor. What will we need to investigate when purchasing an old building? Will the age of the home be a problem?

Older construction methods and materials can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Structures employing traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles. What will our home surveyor check when the home is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by buyers in Bangor who are aware that property could feature roofing woes, like bowing beams. From tie beams to rafters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Amlwch Felt Roofing Contractors of Llwyn/Ffordd Tan Y Bryn, Amlwch, LL68 9BD on 01407 831849 for details.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the Bangor property we plan to buy - Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to an infestation can include traps.

English Heritage

I am intending to purchase a flat near Bwlch Ym Mhwll-Le Cairn , will this affect the property's value?

Bwlch Ym Mhwll-Le Cairn is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance often add to the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other nearby monuments of importance include Caer Pencraig Fort, Carnedd Dafydd Cairn and Carnedd Dafydd.. The surveyor will include all regional criteria during the home buyers survey in Bangor. Visit the English Heritage site for further details on Bwlch Ym Mhwll-Le Cairn.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Bangor building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out an accurate value estimate your surveyor will factor in experience of property in Bangor as well as other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine materials used and will draw upon other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any significant legal problems such as no laws are broken by intended use of property. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor during the legal process.

Additional local Bangor area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
