HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Montgomery and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Montgomery property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Montgomery property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a Montgomery building? If there are problems, will they be inconvenient to fix?

I find it odd that the impact rainfall can have on a property is not considered by purchasers. Signs that rainwater goods are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. This can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

Whether buying in Montgomery or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Montgomery, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the roofing will be checked during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of Montgomery surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can be hiding serious damage to the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Montgomery builder can provide an estimate.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to on guard for if intending to buy a house in Montgomery inside a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of local area factors and any connection may have on the building and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, greater due to them retaining their original character. However many areas have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors will advise if the planned purchase looks to be is designated and Section I of your Montgomery Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping changes to the building will also be noted, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.
