Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey when considering a flat in Miles Platting?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post fifties Miles Platting property built out of standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick/tile. A RICS Building Survey is the most suitable survey to opt for the flat mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a written report is sent to the buyer detailing any significant professional advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the building. There will be certain limitations with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Miles Platting property, an example being the removing secured hatches. Furthermore flats typically, by their very nature, mean the whole building cant easily be inspected. A surveyor can only check the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, the surveyor may provide an opinion other parts of the property for example the drains. For more information and a breakdown of what each survey type includes see the following surveys compared.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a cottage and the seller has informed us that it has been built with West Cornwall granite. Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Miles Platting. Can a property surveyor check flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flooding occurs.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including door frames. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The residential surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
