HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dolwyddelan and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Dolwyddelan property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Dolwyddelan property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will a Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Dolwyddelan.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly beautiful and is found on Georgian homes. It is very similar to plaster. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Dolwyddelan surveyors commonly show issues for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should we upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring a converted Victorian mansion maisonette in Dolwyddelan?

Structural surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. You should opt for a Building Survey for the maisonette you are planning to buy. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a non period unmodified Dolwyddelan maisonette of typical construction materials. Be aware that a number limitations exist with any residential survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not authorised (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the property for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Dolwyddelan house what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

An example of this is loose or missing tiles. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling are reported on. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house, omitting sections as necessary.
