HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in North Ferriby and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the North Ferriby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the North Ferriby property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond upkeep suggestions, can a surveyor in North Ferriby help? Does render make a difference?

Brick North Ferriby properties will experience several common problems, including frost damaged pointing and horizontal cracking. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. D & J Bricklayers should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01908 711740 or 5 Abbey Rd, Simpson, Milton Keynes, MK6 3AE.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.

The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in North Ferriby - What will our surveyor look for?

Homes in North Ferriby that are otherwise ideal will suffer sagging beams, among a range of other roofing issues. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from tie beams to purlins. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of North Ferriby, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a North Ferriby builder for the job itself.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in North Ferriby, and does our RICS surveyor in North Ferriby mention it? And could it affect the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which damp weather has on North Ferriby houses is rarely considered properly. If you have only been to the house you are buying in on a sunny day, obvious defects may be harder to find. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
