HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Blaenau Ffestiniog and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Blaenau Ffestiniog property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Blaenau Ffestiniog property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a detached property in Blaenau Ffestiniog (LL41). The asking price is £80, 639. What considerations will a qualified RICS surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Blaenau Ffestiniog ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect house prices e.g. the amount of ground rent payable or whether there are any original features. It may help to weigh up prices against house values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £75, 639, which is £5, 000 less than the amount you are intending to pay. TyR Festri, Ffestiniog, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, Gwynedd, LL41 4LW a detached property was purchased for £31, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an accurate and professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

The chartered surveyor will always actually visit the house in addition to allowing for the variety of location related influences that might affect house prices.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can the surveyor make for a 20s residence built from rat-trap bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-walled property in Blaenau Ffestiniog can show signs of numerous defects. This could be anything from crumbling mortar to crypto-florescence. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Evans Roy of 16 Waungiach, Llechryd, Cardigan, SA43 2PT on 01239 682436.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Blaenau Ffestiniog, and will the Blaenau Ffestiniog surveyor investigate flood damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can all result in extensive flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
