HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Menai Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Menai Bridge property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Menai Bridge property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that damp from the leaking roof had been a concern. Will access to the roofing be difficult to arrange?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Houses across Menai Bridge can still be subject to problems like poor insulation. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheeting to the roof battens. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

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 builder from the area.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to look into when intending to buy a building in Menai Bridge near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils. Surveyors in Menai Bridge need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any bearing may have with the property. Property Prices will probably be significantly higher as a result of them being largely unspoilt However many areas have fallen into a state for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors will report if the property is/might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Menai Bridge Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property may also be reported in the Menai Bridge survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular home, omitting sections as necessary.

Miscellaneous external elements are including here which do not fit into the other categories. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Rot and insect damage to the beams in a conservatory's fabric is an example of this.
