HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Filton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Filton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Filton property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with leaks in the roof, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by Filton home buyers who know that homes will suffer roofing woes, like dry rot. From dormer windows to tie beams, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, 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. A roofing contractor in the local area can provide an estimate.

Chimney stacks

In the HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a green light rating have on chimney stacks?

A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the home being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

Elements of the property reviewed by Section E should be examined using binoculars if access to the roof cannot be arranged. A missing or damaged firestop is an example.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Tudor house looks in bad shape - what should we do?

Brick-built residences do benefit from many advantages, but they will also experience considerable issues. These can include DPC failure or spalling. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously. Nash bricklayers should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 3 Charminster Av, Birmingham, B25 8RH or 07806 556101.

A great deal of variety of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
