HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Harlech and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Harlech property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Harlech property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Can your HomeBuyer Report consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Factors from damp to groundwater flooding can cause difficulties for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring

that the ground level declines away from the house. Small areas of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I get a full structural survey prior to purchasing a defective, period purpose built apartment near Harlech?

Structural surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a non period unmodified home made out of conventional construction materials i.e. brick and tile. A Building Survey would be the proper survey to opt for in relation to the apartment described.

There are some limitations that are integral with the survey - a local Harlech surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the apartment nor can they inspect no ladder available for flat roofs. Outside buildings will also be surveyed.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Harlech house with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the chartered surveyor give in their report?

Homes in Harlech in good condition can be blighted by problems like incorrectly applied waterproofing. From sheeting to ridge flashing, every element of the roof should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
