HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cheetham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Cheetham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Cheetham property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Cheetham Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with leaks in the roof - What does the home surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. A large number of properties could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. From concrete tiles to wind braces, every part of the roof should be investigated. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible.

This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist in Cheetham can provide one.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a house. Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Cheetham houses will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides and removal of infected furniture.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Cheetham.

Stucco is really just a form of solid render. Typically it is layered over brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly aesthetic and is found on Georgian buildings for example. The composition is almost exactly the same as plaster and mortar. it can be problematic and Cheetham Building Surveys sometimes show issues for instance when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-coating Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.
