HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Whitefield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whitefield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Whitefield property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rain have on our new home, and does our house surveyor mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rainfall can have on property is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have visited the property in dry weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include damp stains around drainage. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to remedy. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Whitefield and are looking for a 40s residence built with Dutch bond brick. What suggestions can a Whitefield surveyor make? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-built Whitefield flats do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by distinct issues, such as frost damaged pointing. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. C S Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 64 Graham Rd, Kirk Sandall, Doncaster, DN3 1JZ or 07940 009607.

Buyers in Whitefield should consider that a number of approaches and materials can be found across Whitefield. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward.

If the Whitefield 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.
