HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Aberdovey and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Aberdovey property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Aberdovey property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Aberdovey House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas installations?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters at the home, as well as gas connected appliances like fireplaces. Any fittings won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Aberdovey based gas engineers include H J Wilkes of 16, Cae Argoed, Aberdyfi, Gwynedd Tel. 07527485962 and Dovey Cottages Maintenance Ltd of The Old Bakehouse, 7 Prospect Place, Aberdovey Tel. 01654767111.

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Aberdovey property what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

For a Aberdovey house, one example could be where roof drains are not located at the roof's lowest points. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report any defects in a combined system.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Aberdovey are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 18th Century renovated farmhouse in Aberdovey. What impact will the thatched roof have on repairs?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character. A building's age, however, can worry purchasers. Aberdovey property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your chartered surveyor for further advice.
