Home Buyers Survey in Edmonton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Edmonton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Edmonton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Edmonton property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs affecting some homes - What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This matter should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we look into rainwater goods?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have visited the home in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Edmonton, what input does the surveyor give for residences built from brick chimney? Does render make a difference?

Brick Edmonton apartments will be affected by numerous defects, including frost damage and spalling. Your surveyor should report on these. One problem often found is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. J L Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 15 Hartford Rd, Sunderland, SR4 8DE or 0191-534 5075.

E.g. stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
