HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Exmouth property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Exmouth property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Exmouth. What will we need to bear in mind when purchasing a house built in around 1790? What consequences will the wooden structure have on upkeep?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners. Buildings built with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in a house we used to own - What advice would the Exmouth house surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for Exmouth home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Homes throughout Exmouth can be hiding serious issues with the roof. From the decking to the roof battens, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Exmouth builder can provide one.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor check out the safety of the gas appliances?

Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
