HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ombersley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ombersley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Ombersley property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect does rain have on our new home? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the impact heavy rainfall can have on homes in Ombersley is not given enough thought by property buyers. Signs that downspouts are a cause for concern include water pooling below gutters, and may lead to hazardous mould. Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home in Ombersley partially constructed Darley Dale stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

Ranging from Orton Scar Limestone to Stanton Moor Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like salt contamination of will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties in Ombersley, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position as part of the Ombersley survey, in addition to gas connected fixtures, for instance chimney breasts or flues. However, the Ombersley qualified surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests of any kind on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call an engineer immediately.
