HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Downend and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Downend property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Downend property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems in a house we used to own - What does the Downend surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Downend. Houses across Downend can still be subject to roofing woes, like wet rot. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the fascias to the collar beams. Your surveyors in Downend may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Downend, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor for the job itself.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a flat in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including non-hazardous waste material. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health problems like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Downend will find structural defects resulting from the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database and Bexley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses cause issues for purchasers? Are there any defects that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. Purchasers renovating Downend properties should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Downend, you can contact local suppliers.
