HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Pangbourne and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Pangbourne property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Pangbourne property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Pangbourne Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that damp from the leaking roof had been a concern. What aspects of the loft will be looked into?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Pangbourne. A large number of properties can be hiding serious issues with the roof like. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Pangbourne, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Pangbourne will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging

a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself. Contact Taplin Barry of 15 Lambourn Clo, Tilehurst, Reading, RG31 5BE on 0118-942 0421 to request an estimate.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor look into the condition of the gas heaters?

Your qualified surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) as part of the Pangbourne survey, as well as gas associated appliances or installations such as the possibility of asbestos. Your Pangbourne chartered surveyor won't remove external fittings nor will they carry out any tests on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Pangbourne and are looking for a house constructed with handmade bricks. What suggestions can the surveyor make?

Brick-built Pangbourne buildings do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also show signs of both minor and serious issues, ranging from badly applied render to DPC failure. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Burton Nicholas Builders of Mickledore/Midhurst Rd, Haslemere, GU27 3DH on 01428 651028.

A broad range of techniques of brick building feature in construction throughout Pangbourne. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
