Home Buyers Survey in Llanberis

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Llanberis and which is cheaper?

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

If the Llanberis property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Llanberis property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Llanberis, and will the property surveyor look for possible flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and house buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residential property, such as via poorly installed doors. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a professional valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise the value of the property your surveyor will refer to in depth understanding of the Llanberis market as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine construction type and will use other assumptions such as no significant problems.

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.

Further Llanberis assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Llanberis environmental issues like local mining issues, also being considered.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Patched areas of the roof, for example, is included in Section E. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the house being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building in Llanberis. What can we do?

Llanberis homes are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
