Home Buyers Survey in Y Felinheli

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Y Felinheli and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Y Felinheli property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Y Felinheli property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

We are intend to be investing in a property in Y Felinheli (LL55) for an asking price of £113, 575. What things will a RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Y Felinheli ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect the price of property for instance the existence of damp or the height of ceilings. You can try to analyse prices achieved in the area for similar flats. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £102, 375, which is £11, 200 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £146, 920. Tyddyn Elan, 4 Woodland Apartments, Llanrug, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Gwynedd, LL55 4AE a leasehold flat recently sold for £65, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Y Felinheli which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. Your qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it necessary to get a full structural survey prior to investing in an abandoned, regency loft apartment in Y Felinheli?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later unmodified Y Felinheli apartment of conventional building materials. A Building Survey would be the most advisable one to go for the property mentioned.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of the accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be supplied to the prospective purchaser specifying in depth and critical advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are several limitations with any survey as a qualified surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the Y Felinheli building such as removing secured panels.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Y Felinheli property will contain a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as standard. To estimate the valuation your independent surveyor will relate to knowledge of Y Felinheli and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any significant legal problems such as there being no on going disputes. Such concerns will be unravelled by your legal representative.

Further area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like local Y Felinheli industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Y Felinheli and saw the driveway surface is broken and uneven. Is this a urgent concern, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Many homes in Y Felinheli are erected with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Subsidence-related cracks are generally wider at the top than at the bottom. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials. Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. 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. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
