HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Corwen and which one is cheaper?

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

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

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Corwen property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Corwen Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Corwen home what can 'E7' refer to?

One example would be steps that spring or sag when used. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers in Corwen deciding whether or not to purchase a Corwen property. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers in Corwen indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the

property. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas installations?

Yes. The local surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the mains gas installation for instance, as well as gas associated appliances for example - associated asbestos. A Corwen qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the system. Gas can be fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require that all landlords must to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Corwen. What warnings would the surveyor give?

Brick Corwen conversions will be subject to diverse problems, from erosion to spalling. The house surveyor will mention these, with feedback. An issue of particular concern is 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. For more information, contact a local builder, Ministry Of Brickwork of 78/78/Beaumont Hill, Darlington, DL1 3ND on 0844-875 4019.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
