HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Breaston and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Breaston property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Breaston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Breaston Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should we get a full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended, fifties garden apartment in Breaston?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its new title recently by RICS. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a post fifties Breaston apartment of normal construction materials and methods. A Building Survey would be the right survey in relation to the apartment described. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the prospective purchaser detailing comprehensive and salient advice in relation to the construction and uses of the building. There will be one or two restrictions with the survey insofar as a surveyor

is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Breaston apartment such as moving heavy furniture.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the past, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does a home surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many residential properties can often hide damp, among a range of other roofing issues. From dormers to parapet walls, every part of the roof should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to Spondon Felt Roofing Services Ltd of 19 Hazel Drive, Spondon, Derby, DE21 7DS on 01332 674785 for an estimate.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. domestic refuse disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include tars and other hazardous materials .

Building Surveys and valuations in Breaston will consider structural problems connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database in addition to Erewash Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
