HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Meir and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Meir property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Meir property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that leaks in the roof had been a concern. What will our property surveyor investigate during the survey?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, poor insulation. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ridge flashing, ought to be checked. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Meir. What will we need to look out for when buying a house built in around 1740? What effect will the property's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers, and Meir homes built with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you are uncertain, speak to the Meir surveyor for more detail.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home in Meir and the seller has suggested that it has been built with Doulting stone. What should we look in to?

Ranging from Beer Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects such as delaminated render affect many stone-walled Meir properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include.

If you need more assistance, get in touch with a local mason or walling contractor - Acorn Fireplaces, Sovereign House, Warren Street, Stoke-On-Trent, ST3 1QB (Phone: 01782 331722) could help.
