HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pentraeth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Pentraeth property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Pentraeth property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a building proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include methane gas generation. Health issues for example birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Pentraeth will note structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the

Landmark database and Ynys MWall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder suggested subsidence has been a problem. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the house survey look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. Many homes in Pentraeth are built with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. In severe conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Pentraeth , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our Pentraeth surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Houses in Pentraeth with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof. From sheeting to valley gutters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of 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 builder in Pentraeth with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.
