HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Nailsworth and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Nailsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Nailsworth property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Nailsworth House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor look into the state of the gas supply?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the location of the meter at the property, in addition to gas associated installations, for instance fixed external ventilation hearths. Any external fittings won't actually be undone. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe Register firms in Nailsworth include Phil Smith Limited of 36 Churchill Road, Nailsworth, Stroud, Gloucestershire Tel. 07791726633 and Chalford Plumbing of Copswood Cottage, Randalls Green, Chalford, Stroud, Gloucestershire Tel. 01453886470.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Nailsworth, what recommendations will a surveyor in Nailsworth make for buildings with English bond walls? Is age a factor?

Brick-built Nailsworth structures feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also show signs of several common problems. One frequently reported defect is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Ace Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 45 Wembley Way, Stockton-On-Tees, TS18 4AJ or 07504 004342.

As an example, Dutch bond or Scottish bond are both used in Nailsworth structures. Consider renegotiating the price of the Nailsworth property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Nailsworth structure with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the roof of the structure will be considered?

Properties in Nailsworth that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to roofing problems. From eaves to ridge flashing, every part of the roof should be reported on. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Nailsworth, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

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