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 .

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.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about if buying a building close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including inert waste material. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include structurally instability .

Building Surveys and valuations in Penrhyndeudraeth will note structural problems resulting from the site. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Gwynedd Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Penrhyndeudraeth could be a concern. What solutions are to available to remedy this?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In some older homes cracks appear in Summer , but these should close up in Winter when the materials soak up moisture.

Subsidence-related cracks are in most cases wider as the crack migrates upward. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
