Which Home Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Barrow In Furness and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Barrow In Furness property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Barrow In Furness property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a Barrow In Furness HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

E7 elements are visually inspected. The type and condition of these parts should also be reported on. A sagging conservatory floor surface, for example, would be reported here. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format

of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that wet rot had been a concern. What will our home surveyor look into during the survey?

Barrow In Furness properties with no other major issues could feature ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. From eaves to tie beams, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor in the local area with accreditation can provide a quote. Contact T P Contracting of 135 Rampside, Barrow-In-Furness, LA13 0PX on 01229 812341 for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a Barrow In Furness home? Are repairs going to be expensive?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which wet weather has on Barrow In Furness houses is not given enough thought. If you have investigated the house on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include "gushing" gutters. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

Fortunately, this is usually easy to remedy, if not neglected. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
