Home Buyers Survey in Millom

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Millom and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Millom property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Millom property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Millom - What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. A large number of properties will suffer damage to the roof, including. From the clay tiles to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) 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 roofing contractor in the local area with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Building Surveys on apartments

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to acquiring a neglected, sixties penthouse apartment in Millom?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a post 1950s unmodified apartment of standard building materials. You should get a Building Survey for the apartment you are planning to buy. There are certain caveats exist with any survey because a local Millom surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the building of look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a house in Millom. How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for insect infestation may include chemical treatment. If you believe mites, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
