Home Buyers Survey in Dolwyddelan

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dolwyddelan and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Dolwyddelan property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Dolwyddelan property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will a Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Dolwyddelan.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly beautiful and is found on Georgian homes. It is very similar to plaster. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Dolwyddelan surveyors commonly show issues for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Dolwyddelan? Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Factors from damp to termites can cause major repair bills for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. For example, minor wall cracks in the bedroom may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Dolwyddelan surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
