HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barnoldswick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Barnoldswick property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Barnoldswick property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which wet weather has on houses is not given more thought by buyers. If you have visited the property you intend to purchase in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include spalling masonry. This could then result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damaged Render

What will the Barnoldswick Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Barnoldswick.

Stucco is actually just a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and is/was was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors can report any number of problems such as when movement of the wall can lead to cracks that allow for water penetration. Other issues might result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey check water damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are at risk of water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.
