HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Trearddur Bay and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Trearddur Bay property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Trearddur Bay property's general condition and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco coated home in Trearddur Bay.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. It is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors commonly highlight issues for instance horizontal visible cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-applying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Stone block wall damage

Can York stone-built houses be problematic. What issues must we watch out for?

Buyers of listed buildings built with stone should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. Issues including penetrating damp affect many stone-walled Trearddur Bay property. 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. Maintenance tips include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1987-built flat in Trearddur Bay and saw that there is a 2mm gap between the basement wall and the door frame. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey reveal?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, damaging the structure, particularly in clay soil as moisture is taken up from the ground by shrubs and trees. Inside, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

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. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
