HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Burnley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Burnley property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Burnley chartered surveyor look for water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Burnley house, such as via door frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Burnley house or on adjacent sites. The surveyor will usually recommend that the house purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller warned us that access to the loft could be time consuming to arrange. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the loft will be reported on when the survey is performed?

This is a common concern for buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Burnley could unfortunately be experiencing wet rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From gables to tie beams, all aspects of the roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Burnley, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Stone block wall damage

Can Portland stone-built property be hard to upkeep. What issues should we be aware of?

Maintenance fees for stone-built Burnley homes can be higher than for more standard. Issues including weathered stone affect many stone-walled Burnley homes. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, consider a stonemason or specialist in Burnley. North West Reclamation Sense Ltd at Mead Way, Padiham, Burnley, BB12 7NG, for example, could assist.
