HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ferryside and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ferryside property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Ferryside property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Ferryside Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Monk bond maintenance advice, can you help?

Brick-built houses do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be subject to several common problems. A defect requiring immediate attention is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Stewart And Sons Builders, 49 Blackfordby La, Moira, Swadlincote, DE12 6EX on 01283 310141 for a quote for repair work.

Buyers in Ferryside should consider that a range of techniques are used in properties built throughout the ages. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new house? Could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which rainfall has on homes is rarely paid due attention by house purchasers. If you have only visited the residence in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include "gushing" gutters. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early. Where this is not unblocked on a regular basis, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Chimney stacks

On a Ferryside HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. One example issue could be loose chimney vent connectors. They will be checked thoroughly, using binoculars as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this.
