HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ferndale and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Ferndale property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Ferndale property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I should check on if intending to buy a property in Ferndale near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation they have on the home. House prices are usually more than prices outside the area due to conservation areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors will report if the property might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Ferndale Homebuyer Report

will advise further investigations are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes to the building will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a property surveyor in Ferndale make for a house built with Fletton brick?

Brick residences in Ferndale will suffer from several common problems. These can include DPC failure or spalling.

For example, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and may require immediate attention. Approved Builders may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 167 Parrswood Rd, Manchester, M20 4RR or 0161-445 2783.

A range of techniques of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. As an example, running, or stretcher, bond.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I check gutters? Will the surveyor report on this? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rain can have on houses is usually overlooked. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage. This could then result in water damage.

Whether buying in Ferndale or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve for a reasonable cost. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
