HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Lancaster and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Lancaster property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice get a Lancaster House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Lancaster. What advice would you give? Does brick decay faster in Lancaster weather?

Brick Lancaster conversions will indicate distinct issues. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Green Steve at Lilac Cottage/Fryern Ct Rd, Burgate, Fordingbridge, SP6 1LZ should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07944 572460.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a flat proximate to Ellel Crag Quarry and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous refuse disposal. There are thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in the UK including Lancaster. Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health problems like spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Lancaster surveyors will note any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database and Lancaster Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Lancaster. Which issues relating to the property's roof will be investigated?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. From slates to ridge flashing, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A Lancaster roofing contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
