HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Oakdale and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Oakdale property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Oakdale property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Oakdale, and will the residential surveyor check for signs of flooding?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Oakdale and nationwide, is a serious concern for homeowners. Both property buyers and home owners in areas exposed to flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage starts, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Oakdale area likely to affect the home also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will

only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Oakdale property with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the building surveyor in Oakdale give in their report?

This is a common concern for home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Homes throughout Oakdale may be exposed to roof maintenance problems, such as poor insulation. From valley gutters to dormers, the whole roof should be investigated. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local roofing specialist with solid references can provide a quote.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes for instance, as well as gas connected installations, for instance balanced flues. However, the Oakdale surveyor will not remove external fittings and he or she won't conduct any tests of any kind on the system. Of course, gas can be deadly, should you have any concerns about gas, call an engineer.
