HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stretford and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Stretford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stretford property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Stretford - What should we do about roof repairs?

Residences in Stretford that are otherwise ideal can often hide poor insulation, among a range of other roofing issues. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ridge flashing to dormer windows, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Stretford, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor can provide one. Contact L J Building Services of 18 Salisbury Rd, Urmston, Manchester, M41 0RB on 07929 620880 for a quote.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick upkeep guidance - can a Stretford property surveyor assist? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed conversions in Stretford demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also be affected by distinct issues. Your chartered surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with repair advice also supplied. One particularly serious issue is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact several local builders for quotes, including D P Brickwork of 47 William St, Sittingbourne, ME10 1HR on 07905 913174.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Stretford home we're buying, but we are not certain. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Property purchasers in Stretford should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning.
