Home Buyers Survey in Eccles

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Eccles and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Eccles property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Eccles property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Eccles , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the RICS surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by Eccles surveyors. Many residential properties can often hide damage to the roof, including. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the ridge flashing, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Eccles, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself. Contact Ringlow Roofing of 116 Ringlow Park Rd, Swinton, Manchester, M27 0HD on 0161-794 5529 for a quote.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report look for any flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive floods, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a property in Eccles through several routes, including seepage through walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property in Eccles lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The home surveyor may ask the vendor about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
