HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Y Felinheli and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Y Felinheli property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Y Felinheli property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Y Felinheli Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic rubbish disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Gwynedd Local Authority and advise you .

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it necessary to get a full structural survey prior to investing in an abandoned, regency loft apartment in Y Felinheli?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later unmodified Y Felinheli apartment of conventional building materials. A Building Survey would be the most advisable one to go for the property mentioned.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of the accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be supplied to the prospective purchaser specifying in depth and critical advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are several limitations with any survey as a qualified surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the Y Felinheli building such as removing secured panels.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Y Felinheli house and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Can we expect the Building Survey to mention this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for property owners. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
