HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Langport and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Langport property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Langport property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Langport House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, as well as gas connected appliances or installations such as chimney linings. Fittings or covers however, won't be detached. The system won't be tested at all. Of course, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Langport based gas engineers include Shaun Barry Cotgrove of The Gables, Stoney Lane, Curry Rivel, Somerset Tel. 07971213244 and Working Water of Office Above, The Post Office, Langport, Somerset Tel. 07740930859.

Damaged Render

What will your Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Langport that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Typically stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. It is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Langport commonly report defects for instance when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other issues could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating problems may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Langport. Which issues relating to the attic will be reported on?

Questions like this are often asked of Langport surveyors by buyers who are aware that property can still be subject to roofing woes, like mould. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to slates. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A Langport roofing contractor can provide an estimate. Speak to Pitcher of Bineham La, Yeovilton, Yeovil, BA22 8EZ on 01935 841433 for a quote.
