HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Llandudno and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Llandudno property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the Llandudno property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Llandudno property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Llandudno property and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Will the Llandudno HomeBuyer Report look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. For example, minor wall cracks in the lounge may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we would be advised to check out if planning to buy a home in Llandudno inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Llandudno need to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and the connection they have on the home and its value. The value of homes will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them resisting change. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the property might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be commented on, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Llandudno. Which issues relating to the roofing will be considered?

This is a common concern for buyers. Many residential properties may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, poor insulation. From wind braces to dormer windows, every part of the roof should be reported on. The RICS surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local contractor for the job itself.
