HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cinderford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cinderford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Cinderford property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Cinderford structure with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our Cinderford house surveyor check when the structure is surveyed?

Cinderford residences with no other major issues could feature roof maintenance problems, such as cracked and loose slates or tiles. From parapet walls to dormer windows, the whole roof should be reported on, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Cinderford roofing specialist for the job itself.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for buyers? Which related issues should we consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, algae being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for the framing of windows or doors. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Broadmoor Brickworks Ltd, Whimsey Industrial Estate, Steam Mills, Cinderford, Gloucestershire, GL14 3JA, quarrying Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01594 822255 for more information.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I opt for a full structural survey prior to investing in a substantially modified, sixties purpose built flat in Cinderford?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name and is now entitled a Building Survey. If buying an unconventional Cinderford property such as an older flat, the Building Survey is now the most appropriate choice of home survey. The written report details thorough and often serious information in relation to the homes condition as well as any technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Also flats usually make access more complicated meaning a surveyor is only able to report on the flat itself, though the surveyor may give details of other sections of the property e.g. shared staircases. For a table containing a comparison of survey types look at here.
