HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Stafford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Stafford property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Stafford property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Stafford, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Many residential properties can still be subject to issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheathing. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange

is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing contractor in Stafford. Contact Stafford Roofing Co of 170 Tixall Road, Stafford, ST16 3UD on 01785 609684 for a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could heavy rain have on a Stafford property? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However wet conditions and the effect it can have on houses in Stafford are not given enough thought. For example, rotten wooden gutters strongly suggest that the drainage systems are blocked.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve. If left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Stafford RICS surveyor check for water damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both house buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The house surveyor may ask the current owner if the Stafford property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
