HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Watnall and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Watnall property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Watnall property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a flat next to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous refuse. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation. Potential health concerns like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Watnall will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Broxtowe Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Watnall. Is there any Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of?? Does brick decay faster in Watnall weather?

Brick-walled structures in Watnall can be subject to several common problems. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or crumbling mortar. Your surveyor in Watnall will cover these in his report and suggest potential remedies. A problem regularly identified is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. A local builder should be able to assist. Call A S A P, 64 Hyde Crescent, London, NW9 7HA on 020 8205 3775 for a quote for repair work.

For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Watnall surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in the past. Which issues relating to the roofing will be considered?

This is often asked by purchasers who know that homes could feature issues with the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

The expense of re-covering asphalt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Watnall for the job itself.
