HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Beddgelert and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Beddgelert property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Beddgelert property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a property near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic refuse. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include methane gas generation .

Homebuyer reports in Beddgelert will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Gwynedd Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I am hoping to buy, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets; does the Beddgelert surveyor advise electrical defects?

When preparing a Home Survey in Beddgelert your surveyor will usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. He or she should also focus on things like confirming the state of repair of any fixed appliances e.g. heaters. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will be part of the survey in Beddgelert.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause difficulties for Beddgelert home? What should we expect a Beddgelert House Survey to include?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Beddgelert property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
