HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Tywyn and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tywyn property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Tywyn property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Tywyn Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will your Home Survey look into this?

Factors from Japanese knotweed to low-grade construction materials can cause costs and inconvenience for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as small cracks in the bathroom floor. A Tywyn surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems at our old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the attic be hard to organise?

This is often asked by purchasers who know that homes can still be subject to damage to the roof, including. From sheathing to valley gutters, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Tywyn builder commented that there could be powdery asbestos soffit boards situated in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Some types are found in the building materials such as sealant.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof tiles.

All forms (including white) are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.
