Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Oughtibridge

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if purchasing a property constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Oughtibridge

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Oughtibridge) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more detailed. Opt for this for non standard e.g. timber frame or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Oughtibridge

    This is an independent valuation . It is usually chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Oughtibridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Oughtibridge property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Oughtibridge property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Oughtibridge? Are repairs going to be expensive?

I find it odd that the impact damp weather can have on homes is rarely paid due attention. If you have only seen the house you are buying in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include rotten roofing elements, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, this is usually easy to fix. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated home in Oughtibridge that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a sort of flat finish render. Usually it is layered over brick to form an even finish. It is very beautiful and is often found on Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Oughtibridge Homebuyer Reports commonly report defects e.g. horizontal visible cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues could be when water gets in under windows that results in the render detaching. Re-applying problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in a house we used to own, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our Oughtibridge property surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is often asked by house purchasers who know that homes could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the rafters to the wind braces. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Oughtibridge, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A roofing specialist can provide an estimate. Contact Roofinginsheffield.Co.Uk of 61 Hallowmoor Rd, Sheffield, S6 4WY on 0114-221 0634 for an estimate.
