What Survey should I choose for my house purchase in Bulwell?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bulwell

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a home constructed from standard materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bulwell

    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Bulwell) will also be conducted by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. timber wall homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bulwell

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bulwell and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Bulwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Bulwell property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Bulwell Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Bulwell. Which issues relating to the roofing will be considered?

This often causes anxiety for Bulwell home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes could feature roofing woes, like incorrectly applied waterproofing. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to sheathing, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and

even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Speak to Cropley Tony of 5 Mallard Clo, Nottingham, NG6 0EJ on 0115-978 1382 for details.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Pests like termites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Bulwell.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to an infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Bulwell property? Will my Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as warped window frames in the kitchen. A Bulwell surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
