If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Oldland property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Oldland property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Window frame

On a Oldland HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers in Oldland a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but maintenance may still be necessary.

An example defect for this is blocked (or missing) drain holes. Where practicable, all windows are to

be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the vendor has made us aware that it has been built with Slate. Which potential issues should we consider?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property, and enforced by the local council. Issues including deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled homes in Oldland. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Oldland, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the shower room - Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Pests like bed bugs may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Oldland. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
