Home Buyers Survey in Llanfairfechan

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Llanfairfechan and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Llanfairfechan property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Llanfairfechan property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Llanfairfechan is an issue. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the house survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Heave is less common, and can be caused when a tree dies or is uprooted and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Many houses develop superficial cracks in a wall or floor, due to settlement, changes in temperature and humidity. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this home in Llanfairfechan looks in bad shape. What are the possible consequences?

Llanfairfechan brick-walled houses can experience both minor and serious issues. A serious concern is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Wells Mark may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01536 261379 or 13 Oundle Rd, Weldon, Corby, NN17 3JR.

Buyers in Llanfairfechan should consider that a number of approaches and materials have been used across the country for centuries. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
