HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pattingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Pattingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Pattingham property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Pattingham Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Pattingham, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the building survey check for indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Pattingham and across the country, and the value of a house in Pattingham in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a residence through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residence lies within an area of potential or previous

flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Chimney stacks

In a Pattingham HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Chimney stacks will be checked thoroughly using binoculars. Creosote build-up in the chimney flue would be reported here, for example.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick wall maintenance tips for the Victorian property we're buying?

Pattingham brick-walled houses can be subject to several common problems, such as signs of movement. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Peters Simon of 6 Wavertree Rd, Chester, CH1 5AE on 01244 370924.

A broad range of techniques of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
