HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Bethesda and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Bethesda property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the Bethesda property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Bethesda property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century renovated farmhouse in Bethesda. What consequences will the structure's construction have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Bethesda would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. A building's age, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Bethesda property built with traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Bethesda area, , which could end up costing more than initially budgeted.

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Bethesda, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Bethesda are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers a clear understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. One example would be swollen or rotten plywood or hardboard. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves are reported on.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the seller has confirmed that it has been built with Wooton stone. Are there any matters that need to be investigated?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built property in Bethesda can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Bethesda are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
