Home Buyers Survey in Porthmadog

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Porthmadog and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Porthmadog property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Porthmadog property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are interested to acquire, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will a Porthmadog survey report on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Homebuyer Report in Porthmadog the surveyor should usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor condition. A Home surveyor should also things like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or if there are residual circuit breakers. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a Porthmadog house. Will a surveyor look into this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Porthmadog home may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for pest problems may include traps. The Porthmadog surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a property close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including inert refuse. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns for example downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Porthmadog will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database and Gwynedd Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
