HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kinmel Bay and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Kinmel Bay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kinmel Bay property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Kinmel Bay RICS surveyor search for signs of flooding?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can all result in extensive flooding. Both buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Kinmel Bay area likely to affect the residence also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a house in Kinmel Bay. What should we expect a House Survey to include?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with shrinking of clay soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like a hard-to-open living room door or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a converted cow-house. Will the age of the property be a problem?

Some buyers in Kinmel Bay hope to own a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Kinmel Bay homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Kinmel Bay's conservation areas. Contact your surveyor for more information.
