HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Battlesbridge and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Battlesbridge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Battlesbridge property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this converted property might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed residential property do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience diverse problems. These can include efflorescence or spalling. Your RICS surveyor will mention these, with repair advice also supplied. A serious concern is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. A B B Co should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 42 Nursery Rd, Hook End, Brentwood, CM15 0HE or 01277 821907.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

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 should we do about roof repairs?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Battlesbridgewho have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes could feature roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to eaves, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Battlesbridge builder for the job itself. Contact Orton B K of 28 Highcliffe Cl, Wickford, SS11 8JZ on 01268 768133 to request a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we look into downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that heavy rain and the effect it can have on Battlesbridge houses are not considered. If you have only seen the house you are buying in on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. In most cases, problems with drains are generally easy to remedy, if not neglected.
