About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gwynedd

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Gwynedd and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Gwynedd property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Gwynedd property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Kentish Rag stone walls. Are there specific factors to consider?

Purchasers in Gwynedd should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Gwynedd homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Minffordd Quarry, Penrhyneudraeth, Porthmadog, Gwynedd, LL48 6HP, quarrying Igneous & Metamorphic Rock, for details. Call 01766 770212 for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located near a river. Is there a major flood risk? Would our building survey check for flood damage?

The lives of many property owners in Gwynedd and across the UK have been affected by floods, and the value of a Gwynedd house in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Gwynedd area likely to affect the property also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The building surveyor may ask the current owner about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would be advised to be conscious of if planning to buy an extended house in Gwynedd inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the bearing they have on the building. Property values will probably be greater which is down to them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected advise whether the location is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be commented on, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
