HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Aberdaron and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Aberdaron property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Aberdaron property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in LL53 - Aberdaron on with a local agent for £246, 786. What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Aberdaron ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices e.g. the existence of damp or whether the property is on an adopted road. It can help to compare with the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £230, 286, which is £16, 500 less than the amount being asked. Rhos, Tudweiliog, Pwllheli, Gwynedd, Gwynedd, LL53 8AQ a detached home sold for £175, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default.

A local surveyor will always actually visit the site as well as considering all other location related influences that can impact on house prices.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Aberdaron, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does the Aberdaron HomeBuyer Report cover this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Aberdaron property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Steps like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a building. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Properties will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
