HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Penrhyndeudraeth and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Penrhyndeudraeth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Penrhyndeudraeth property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Which problems should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Poor use of coating can often cause problems for houses in Penrhyndeudraeth with stone walls. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Llechwedd Slate Mine, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, LL41 3NB, quarrying Slate, for details. Call 01766 830522 for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Penrhyndeudraeth residence might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick conversions in Penrhyndeudraeth will suffer from distinct issues, such as thermal movement.

A defect often found is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. ArchBrickwork at 33 Merivale Road, Harrow, HA1 4BJ on 020 8423 3435.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am planning to move into it appeared that there is old wiring. Does a Penrhyndeudraeth survey write anything on electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Penrhyndeudraeth your RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state of repair. A Surveyor is required to report on potential areas for concern such as reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Penrhyndeudraeth.

The IEE advise an electrical system check should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
