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 .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this house is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor consider any flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN). Both home buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor may ask the seller if the Beddgelert home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Stone block wall damage

Will a conversion with stone walls create upkeep problems? What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Repair costs for stone-built properties can be higher than for more standard , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to on guard for if intending to buy a property in Beddgelert in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Beddgelert need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection may have on the building and its value. The price of property tends to be inflated which is down to the areas being preserved. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you if the planned purchase looks to be is designated and Section I of a Beddgelert Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented changes that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Beddgelert survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
