HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Lyddington and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Lyddington property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Lyddington property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the past, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a Lyddington property surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Many residential properties can still be subject to roof maintenance problems, such as mould. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Lyddington roofing specialist for the job itself.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Lyddington, what directions can a Lyddington surveyor offer for a 30s home built from Diagonal bond walls? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed apartments in Lyddington demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be affected by numerous defects, ranging from spalling to moisture damage. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, Godden J V of 13 Youngs Rd, Ilford, IG2 7LF on 020 8554 0417.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I expect to lease it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets; will a Homebuyer Report in Lyddington write anything on electrical defects?

When conducting a Lyddington Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor should usually comment on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of the accessible parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas like inspecting the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.
