HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Winsford property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Winsford property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Winsford Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Kentish Rag stone walls. Are there specific matters to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Orton Scar Limestone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. 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.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor advise on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your will locate and visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the home, as well as gas connected installations e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. Your Winsford qualified surveyor will not remove external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be dangerous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Winsford based gas engineers include G T Plumbing & Heating of 10, Swanlow Avenue, Winsford, Cheshire Tel. 07967006385 and Powerheat of The Gables, 1 Pinewood Road, Winsford, Cheshire Tel. 07837352677.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Winsford. What recommendations will a Winsford surveyor make? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed residential property in Winsford demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also be affected by a range of defects. These can include weathering or signs of movement. One serious matter is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Wells Mark at 13 Oundle Rd, Weldon, Corby, NN17 3JR should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01536 261379.
