HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Bala and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bala property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Bala property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a flat in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include complex organic chemicals .

Surveys in Bala will note any structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets and Gwynedd Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to buying an extended Edwardian basement apartment in Bala?

Full Structural Surveys are now called Building Surveys. When planning to buy an unconventional home e.g. a neglected house, it is now the right home survey to opt for. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post 1950s Bala property of conventional construction materials. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts of the house, the surveyor's formal report is posted to the client giving any frequently critical information about the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any residential survey as a surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Bala building e.g. undoing electrical fittings. This page for more info what is and is not included.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including soil vent pipes. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in rain water goods.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken however, not to move it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Bala survey. They will mention possible asbestos and should offer advice.
