HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hilton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Hilton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Hilton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that the had been a problem with deteriorated flashing, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the loft will be reported on when the survey is performed?

Properties in Hilton in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer wet rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From clay tiles to tie beams, the whole roof should be investigated. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, 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 builder

from the area can provide one. Call Smedley T of 15 Derby Rd, Burton-On-Trent, DE14 1RU on 01283 531157 for a quote.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor inspect the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the routing of any gas pipes for example, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Hilton chartered surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they carry out any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Hilton based gas engineers include WW Jackson of 6 Shaef Close, Hilton, Derby, Derbyshire Tel. 07835934642 and M J B Heating Ltd of 9 Derby Road, Hilton, Derby Tel. 07808 914227.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Doulting stone. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
