HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Penmaenmawr and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Penmaenmawr property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Penmaenmawr property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include structurally instability .

Penmaenmawr RICS surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Conwy Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the home I want to move into, it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. Does a the surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Penmaenmawr Building Survey a RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. A Chartered surveyor should also report on potential areas for concern such as the whereabouts of the fuse board . A check for the documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey in Penmaenmawr. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Penmaenmawr .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor check out the condition of the gas appliances?

A RICS surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations like fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Penmaenmawr qualified surveyor will not remove external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests of any kind on the system. Gas is potentially fatal, should you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.
