HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Barmouth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barmouth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Barmouth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get an instant Barmouth House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a building next to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include heavy metals .

Building Surveys and valuations in Barmouth will flag up structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Gwynedd Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Barmouth chartered surveyor consider any water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and owning a home in Barmouth in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including poorly installed doors. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Barmouth, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the RICS surveyor look for?

Barmouth houses in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to damage to the roof. From eaves to collar ties, the whole roof will be taken into account. The Barmouth surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
