HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bootle and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Bootle property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the Bootle property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Bootle property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the property in Bootle we plan to buy - Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, infestations can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Bootle. Is there any Sussex bond repair advice we should be aware of?? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built Bootle converted property demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also indicate diverse problems, such as inadequate damp-proofing. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Wall A Bricklaying Contractor Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 5 Arley Close, Upton, Chester, CH2 1NW or 01244 313264.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick.

If the Bootle 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

The seller said that the had been a problem with rotten beams, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

Bootle properties in otherwise fine condition could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, bad drainage. From the concrete tiles to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Bootle, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
