HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Old St Mellons 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 comprehensive survey.

If the Old St Mellons property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Old St Mellons property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in a house we used to own. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Local property that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer sagging beams, among a range of other roofing issues. From ceiling joists to fascias, every element of the roof must be reviewed. Factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

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 quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
