HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Eccleston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Eccleston property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Eccleston, what recommendations will a property surveyor in Eccleston make for property built with brick chimney?

Eccleston buildings with brick walls can experience both minor and serious issues. These can include lack of a damp proof course or sulphate attack. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with repair advice also supplied.

A defect often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves

of the wall. Buckley R should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 0113-286 8888 or 5 Gibson La, Kippax, Leeds, LS25 7BA.

For instance, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a building. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Eccleston home may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. Signs may not be obvious, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. As some vermin can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If you believe mites, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Chimney stacks

In a Eccleston HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

One example would be abandoned openings for flue connections to the chimney. They are inspected by eye with binoculars if access to the roof cannot be arranged.
