HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Rowen and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Rowen property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Rowen property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

What things will a RICS surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Rowen ?

There are many factors that can impact on the price of property e.g. the existence of double glazing or the direction the house faces. .

In order to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Tudor property has deteriorated - what should we do?

Rowen brick-walled residential property can indicate a number of issues. Your house surveyor will mention these, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A defect requiring immediate attention is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. M A Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01763 230462 or 13 Russet Way, Melbourn, Royston, SG8 6HF.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Rowen - What does a Rowen surveyor investigate during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property will suffer roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to slates, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
