HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Radcliffe on Trent and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Radcliffe on Trent property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Radcliffe on Trent property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Radcliffe on Trent, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the bedroom. How do we investigate further?

Property purchasers in Radcliffe on Trent should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should be wary of when planning to buy a home in Radcliffe on Trent inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Surveyors in Radcliffe on Trent must possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and the effect they have with the property. Values will be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being in good order. However many conservation areas are falling into disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Property surveyors will advise you whether the property is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Radcliffe on Trent Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building should be noted, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Ives & Co are based in The Forge, Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire, NG12 5NB might be happy to help. Tel: 0115 937 2408

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Radcliffe on Trent - What will our building surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Radcliffe on Trentwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as wet rot. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the clay tiles to the collar beams. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Radcliffe on Trent contractor can provide an estimate. Speak to Mack G of 11 St. Bartholomews Rd, Nottingham, NG3 3EH on 0115-958 8237 for an estimate.
