HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ravenshead and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ravenshead property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Ravenshead property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Ravenshead property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does damp weather have on a Ravenshead property?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet damp weather and the effect it can have on property in Ravenshead are not given more thought by buyers. If you have only been to the property you intend to purchase in on a clear day, issues may have been hidden.

Whether buying in Ravenshead or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we are intending to move into we think we noticed that there is an old fuse board ; will a Ravenshead survey report on the electrics?

When conducting a Ravenshead Building Survey a surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state. He or she will also report back on issues like confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Ravenshead.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Ravenshead with stone walls cause issues? Are there specific problems to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

The cost of repairs for stone-built buildings can be higher than for more standard. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Alkane Energy UK Ltd, Edwinstowe House, High Street, Edwinstowe, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG21 9PR, which quarries Abandoned Mine Methane, for details. Call 01623 827927 for more information.
