HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Llanberis and which is cheaper?

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

If the Llanberis property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Llanberis property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a property's foundations? What should we expect a Llanberis HomeBuyer Report to include?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant, with moisture changes in the soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like taking care not to let

plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Patched areas of the roof, for example, is included in Section E. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the house being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

House Prices

What things does a Llanberis RICS chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Llanberis ?

Any number of issues that might affect the price of property for example the quality of nearby schools or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. .

An impartial way to get an accurate home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
