HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Ivybridge and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Ivybridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Ivybridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems in the old property. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by house purchasers who know that homes could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. From slates to tie beams, the whole roof will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a local contractor a quote for any suggested

work. Call Aden Jade Services Ltd of Unit 5 Cadleigh Cl, Lee Mill Industrial Estate, Ivybridge, PL21 9GB on 01752 698844 for an estimate.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 18th Century coast house in Ivybridge. What consequences will the rafter roof have on repairs?

If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your chartered surveyor for more information.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s residential property with stone walls. Are there specific issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Ivybridge properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. Repair advice often includes.
