About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Machynlleth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Machynlleth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Machynlleth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Machynlleth property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including roof gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken however, not to remove asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Machynlleth home survey. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos risks and should inform you of the options.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to verify when purchasing a property in Machynlleth inside a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Machynlleth must have relevant knowledge of local area factors and any connection they have on the home. Prices will be higher because of them being in good order.

Surveyors will note whether the building looks like it may be so designated and Section I of your Machynlleth Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.
