About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cinderford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cinderford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cinderford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Cinderford property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Cinderford house or flat what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

An example defect for this is the bowing or leaning of external, non-structural walls. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will wet conditions have on our new house in Cinderford?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rainfall can have on houses is usually overlooked by buyers. Signs that drainage systems are under performing include flaking or efflorescence on external walls.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
