HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Towyn and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Towyn property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Towyn property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Towyn House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Window frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Towyn what does a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A loose fitting sash window is an example of this. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary, but regular upkeep may still be required. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Towyn house.

Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of insects in the shower room. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to pest problems can include traps. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we are meaning to purchase, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Homebuyer Report in Towyn advise the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Towyn Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state. A professional surveyor is expected to focus on concerns such as reporting on the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances like heaters. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Towyn .

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
