HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Snaith and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Snaith property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Snaith property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Snaith. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in Snaith in good condition can often hide dry rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From wind braces to slates, every part of the roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Snaith, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Snaith will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Snaith builder for the job itself. Speak to Pearson Roofing of 15 Green La, Askern, Doncaster, DN6 0PU on 01302 708133 for a quote.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about insects affecting properties nearby - Should we get a house surveyor?

Buyers in Snaith should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, infestations can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include chemical treatment. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1840s home with stone walls. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

Maintenance fees for stone-built houses can be higher than for more standard. Defects affecting stone-built houses can vary, efflorescence being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
