HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rainford and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Rainford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Rainford property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a Rainford surveyor make for a 90s home built with brick walls?

Brick conversions in Rainford will indicate several common problems, such as lack of a damp proof course. For instance, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including S B M Building & Property Maintenance of 45 St. Marys Road, Swanley, BR8 7BA on 01322 406351.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond, to the rare, such shiner bond describes

bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Rainford, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does a surveyor in Rainford check when the property is surveyed?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious roofing woes, like poor insulation. From eaves to parapet walls, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

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

Gas flame

Will a surveyor look at the safety of the gas flues?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation where relevant, as well as gas related installations such as fireplaces. If there are any fittings they won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Most people are aware that gas can be deadly, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations obligate landlords to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are severe .
