HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Criccieth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Criccieth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Criccieth property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In a Criccieth HomeBuyer Report what can 'E3' include?

The rainwater goods are inspected by eye, where access is possible. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere blocked drains below ground. Clogged roof drains is one defect applicable to this section. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home purchasers a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a Criccieth residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Stone block wall damage

Can Cotswold stone-built houses in Criccieth be hard to upkeep. Are there any issues that need to be investigated?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled Criccieth houses. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Criccieth houses, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Repair advice often includes resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. Never try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Criccieth HomeBuyer report. They will mention the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
