Home Buyers Survey in Clare

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Clare and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Clare property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Clare property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Clare house with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the building surveyor in Clare pay attention to during the survey?

Local property with no other major issues may be exposed to damage to the roof, including. From collar ties to purlins, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacement of a failed dormer, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would the surveyor give for a 90s property with Sussex bond brick?

Brick-built Clare conversions do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to a range of defects, from frost damage to defective mortar. One frequently reported defect is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Contact P & L Builders for a repairs estimate at 07961 842833 or 21 Chapel Avenue, Walsall, WS8 7NT.

A number of approaches and materials of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
