HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Caernarfon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Caernarfon property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Caernarfon property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would be advised to check out if purchasing a converted flat in Caernarfon near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Caernarfon surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the bearing may have on the home and its value. Property Prices will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them retaining original features. However many areas have fallen into poor condition e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the planned purchase is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Caernarfon property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost as part of the report. When calculating an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will call upon awareness of the Caernarfon property market and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and use other assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues like no laws are broken by use of property. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local Caernarfon area assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental issues like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I am intending to move into, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will the surveyor write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Caernarfon the surveyor will add detail on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. Your surveyor is expected to concerns such as checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Caernarfon. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).
