Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Droylsden

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a property made of conventional building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Droylsden

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Droylsden) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this when buying a non standard , for example architecturally unusual or older homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Droylsden and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Droylsden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Droylsden property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Droylsden and are looking for a 50s house built with Flemish bond walls. What recommendations will you make?

Brick-walled converted property in Droylsden can be subject to a number of issues. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. RDF Construction at 26 Worple Road, Staines, TW18 1EA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07725 189484.

For home purchasers in Droylsden seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to look into when purchasing a property in Droylsden inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Droylsden are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any connection may have with the home and its value. The value of homes is generally greater as a result of conservation areas resisting change. However many conservation areas are falling into a poor state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors are trained to tell you if the planned purchase is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a home close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial refuse disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Droylsden RICS surveyors will note any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Tameside Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
