Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to go for a full structural survey before investing in a defective thirties home in Liverpool?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a non period unmodified Liverpool house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the right one to go for in relation to the house described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible areas of the house a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the purchaser providing in depth and salient information concerning the construction of the house. There will be a few restrictions with a Building Survey because your surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Liverpool house, an example being the removing secured panels.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Edwardian terrace might need repairs - what should we do?

Brick-walled Liverpool houses can experience numerous defects, such as badly applied render. An especially severe issue is sulfate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Ingleby Brickwork, 4 Wharton Rd, Stamford Bridge, York, YO41 1PN on 01759 377556 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-build property are found in many homes built in this country, leading to a number of popular courses and methods.

Defective door fram

On a Liverpool HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

One example would be blocked drainage holes. Outside doors are to be opened and closed if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Broadly speaking, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house purchasers a clear understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

  • Sash window frame with wet rot

    By Stewart Heasman September 29th, 2012

    Wet rot is usually associated with neglect or poor detailing in buildings, occurring in timbers which are continually wet, or having persistent moisture content in excess of around 20%. This can be caused by leaking roofs, joinery exposed to the elements (as was the case in this property) or...
