Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Penylan, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy.

The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the residence. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular residence, omitting sections as necessary. An example defect for this is damage to soffits or fascias. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be covered.
