HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Trefriw and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Trefriw property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the Trefriw property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Trefriw property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco home in Trefriw.

Stucco is actually just a sort of flat finish render. Usually it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and is often found on Regency homes. It is very similar to plaster in its nature. It used to have lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Trefriw surveyors sometimes show any number of problems for instance when it is exposed to on-going

weathering and rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor look for water damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways could all cause major flooding, and owning a Trefriw home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including window frames. An awareness of characteristics of the Trefriw area likely to affect the property also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I go for a full structural survey prior to investing in a poor condition thirties purpose built maisonette in Trefriw?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Trefriw maisonette of conventional construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is the correct one to choose for the maisonette described.

There are certain provisos exist with a Building Survey as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the property or inspect no ladder available for flat roofs.
