HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Llanrwst and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Llanrwst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Llanrwst property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to check on when planning to buy an extended house in Llanrwst near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Llanrwst surveyors must have local knowledge of local area issues and any effect they have with the property and its value. House prices will probably be significantly higher as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt

Property surveyors are trained to advise you if the property might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised during the legal process. Out of keeping extensions to the building should be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Llanrwst home with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for Llanrwst home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like dry rot. From roof battens to dormer windows, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to purchase a ground floor apartment in Llanrwst, does the Llanrwst surveyor investigate possible flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before flood damage occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
