Home Buyers Survey in Bacup

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Bacup and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Bacup property is a flat or maisonette, 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 intend to do any alterations on the Bacup property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Bacup property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Pests like house longhorn beetle may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Bacup. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. Evidence may not be easy to find, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with loose slates, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our Bacup house surveyor look for?

Bacup houses with no other major issues can still be subject to damage to the roof. From clay tiles to collar beams, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) 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. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in the local area can provide one. Call Mass Roofing of 19 Lime St, Colne, BB8 9EL on 01282 701235 to request an estimate.
