HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Marford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Marford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Marford property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in the old property. What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

Homes in the area with no other major issues could feature damp, among a range of other roofing issues. From the sheathing to the parapet walls, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Marford, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Marford builder for the job itself.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like the gas pipe route at the building, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance chimney breasts. External covers however, won't be undone. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to verify when planning to buy a house in Marford in a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Marford need to possess local knowledge of local issues and the effect may have on the property and its value. Values will be higher because of them being unspoilt.

Property surveyors are expected advise you if the planned purchase is possibly in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Marford Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Out of keeping modifications to the property should be reported in the Marford survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
