Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Upper Tean , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the Upper Tean surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Homes throughout Upper Tean could feature roofing problems, such as. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before

the exchange of contracts. A builder with good feedback can provide a quote. Speak to Roof Right of 196 The Highfield/Henhurst Hill, Burton-On-Trent, DE13 9SU on 01283 530000 for more information.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor be looking for on a stucco regency house in Upper Tean.

Stucco is really just a specific type of render. Normally it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is very attractive and is common on some Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Upper Tean Building Surveys sometimes report any number of problems e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks.

Another example of problems could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would need to be conscious of if purchasing a converted house in Upper Tean inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council. Upper Tean surveyors must have knowledge of local area issues and the bearing they have with the building and its value. Property Prices will probably be greater owing to conservation areas being in their original state. However many are falling into disrepair e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors are expected report if the house is or might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Unconsented extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
