HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Grove Park and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Grove Park property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Grove Park property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Grove Park , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the RICS surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for Grove Park home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Many residential properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. From eaves to valley gutters, the roof structure as a whole should be investigated. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacing rotten rafters or soffits, 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 quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Grove Park builder.

Deteriorated timber

In a Grove Park HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be covered. Ageing wood sidings, for example, would be reported here.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Grove Park are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a Grove Park house? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Both in Grove Park, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on a residence are not given more thought by purchasers. For instance, rusted iron elements can often mean that the gutters are worth a closer look. This can lead to damage to foundations.

Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
