HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in New Brighton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the New Brighton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the New Brighton property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us - What will our New Brighton surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This often causes anxiety for New Brighton buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across New Brighton may be exposed to roof maintenance problems, such as incorrectly applied waterproofing. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheeting to the valley gutters. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in New Brighton, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the New Brighton surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder from the area for the job itself. Call Colorseal of 28 Belmont Cr, Buckley, CH7 3NE on 01244 544879 for an estimate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in New Brighton, and think we saw signs of insects in the shower room - What advice should we get?

Homes are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pest problems can include traps and removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Deteriorated timber

In a New Brighton HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, are reported on. Loose cement sidings is one example.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.
