HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Abbots Bromley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Abbots Bromley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Abbots Bromley property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the Abbots Bromley property surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by buyers who are aware that property can be hiding serious issues with the roof like. From the rafters to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Abbots Bromley builder can provide one.

Chimney stacks

On a Abbots Bromley HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Abbots Bromley are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Abbots Bromley house or flat's value. Potential defects covered by Section E are inspected visually where appropriate. Loose, missing or deteriorated masonry is an example of this.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old coast house. Will the age of the house be an issue?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. For traditionally-built Abbots Bromley property, age, however, can concern buyers. Abbots Bromley property employing traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for more information.
