If the Rainhill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property we plan to buy. Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Rainhill property are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for vermin may include removal of infected furniture. If you believe vermin, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could heavy rain have on a home in Rainhill?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather damp weather and the effect it can have on houses are usually overlooked by house purchasers. Signs that drainage are damaged include rotten roofing elements, and may lead to hazardous mould. Fortunately, this is usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that damp from the leaking roof had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our Rainhill surveyor look into during the survey?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can be hiding serious roofing problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to dormer windows. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts.
