HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Macclesfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Macclesfield property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Macclesfield property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will a Property Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Macclesfield.

Stucco is really just smooth type of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly appealing and is common on some Regency properties. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster and mortar in its constituency. It used to contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a grid underneath to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Macclesfield can focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance trapped moisture resulting in the surface breaking. Other issues could be when the stucco is taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC. Re-applying problems can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Macclesfield. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the Macclesfield property surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is a common concern for Macclesfield homebuyers. Houses across Macclesfield can be hiding serious issues with the roof like. From decking to valley gutters, all aspects of the roof will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) 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 quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we are intending to move into it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring; does Homebuyer Report in Macclesfield report on the electrical system?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Macclesfield the RICS surveyor will typically remark on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. This will include a by sight inspection of the unconcealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as issues like the mains supply. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Macclesfield. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Macclesfield .
