HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Eccleston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Eccleston property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the chartered surveyor search for flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record; sensible owners and buyers in Eccleston are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The home surveyor may ask the occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a cottage. What consequences will the rafter roof have on repairs?

A property's age can create issues for homeowners. Eccleston structures showcasing traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Eccleston listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. Discuss this with your RICS surveyor for further advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Eccleston, what recommendations will a property surveyor in Eccleston make for property built with brick chimney?

Eccleston buildings with brick walls can experience both minor and serious issues. These can include lack of a damp proof course or sulphate attack. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with repair advice also supplied.

A defect often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Buckley R should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 0113-286 8888 or 5 Gibson La, Kippax, Leeds, LS25 7BA.

For instance, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
