HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Rossendale and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Rossendale property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the Rossendale property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Rossendale property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to order a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer available as a newer technical survey given the name Building Survey is now available. When buying an altered house like an unloved house in Rossendale - this is now the right selection of survey to go for. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s unmodified Rossendale house of normal construction materials and methods. Once an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal written report will be sent to the prospective purchaser providing any important

details in relation to the construction of the house. There will be one or two provisos with any survey insofar as your surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Rossendale building for example removing secured hatches.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Rossendale. What does the Rossendale property surveyor look into during the survey?

Properties in Rossendale in good condition may be exposed to roofing woes, like damp. From rafters to wind braces, the whole roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Rossendale contractor. Speak to JD Roofing of 131 Jubilee Rd, Haslingden, Rossendale, BB4 4DD on 01706 831366 to request an estimate.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older property in Rossendale. Will the age of the residence be an issue?

Some buyers would be interested in owning property with real personality. A building's age, however, can concern buyers. Homes employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Discuss this with your property surveyor for further advice.
