HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Biddulph 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 Biddulph property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that bowing had been a concern - Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Many homes can often hide roof maintenance problems. From ceiling joists to dormers, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Biddulph, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Call Wolf Roofing Ltd of 20 Stross Av, Stoke-On-Trent, ST6 6NB on 01782 811110 to request an estimate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of pests in the loft. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, 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. Treatment for pests may include insecticides or destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Pestex Services, 2 West Drive, St Edwards Park, Cheddleton, Leek, Staffs, ST13 7DW, or call them on 0153 836 0172.
