HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Snowdonia and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Snowdonia property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Snowdonia property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a building constructed in 1760 in Snowdonia? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners. Snowdonia homes employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller said subsidence may be an issue. What subsidence information does the Snowdonia house survey include?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be remedied. A builder should return to a new structure within a few months in order to make repairs.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel content, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Substandard guttering

For the Snowdonia HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat. The drainage system is inspected visually with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Undersized gutters is an example.
