HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Cleator and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Cleator property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Cleator property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Cleator, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the RICS surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Houses in Cleator that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. clay tiles. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Cleator, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as wholesale 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. 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.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a property in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: industrial refuse disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Surveys in Cleator will note structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Copeland Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco coated Victorian house in Cleator which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Usually stucco render is applied to red brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly aesthetic and is often found on Victorian homes. It is very similar to any other render. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Cleator can highlight issues e.g. when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-covering problems may be costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
