HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Colwyn Bay and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Colwyn Bay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Colwyn Bay property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Colwyn Bay, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the attic will be considered?

Local property in otherwise fine condition will suffer missing tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Colwyn Bay, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Colwyn Bay will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of thatching, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can

lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor can provide one.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a home close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert rubbish. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include complex organic chemicals .

Surveyors will notice structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Conwy Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to check on when planning to buy a property in Colwyn Bay in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the building. The value of homes tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of conservation areas being unspoilt. However many of them are falling into are falling into a poor state for example - the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the house is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported in the Colwyn Bay survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
