HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Glossop and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Glossop property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Glossop property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a house next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including industrial waste disposal. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Glossop surveyors will consider structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to High Peak Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Glossop - What should we do about roof repairs?

Residences in Glossop with no other major issues will suffer incorrectly applied waterproofing, among a range of other roofing issues. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the valley gutters. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor can provide one. Call KJ Builders & Roofers of 10 Anglesey Drive, Poynton, Stockport, SK12 1BT on 01625 630162 to request a quote.

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Glossop, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers in Glossop a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers in Glossop deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house or flat's value. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. For a Glossop property, one example could be crumbling stucco. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be covered.
