About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gurnard

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Gurnard and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Gurnard property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Gurnard property's state of repair along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial waste disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Gurnard RICS surveyors will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological database and Isle of Wight Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the old property, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our Gurnard surveyor look for?

Residences in Gurnard in good condition can be hiding serious problems like ponding. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, 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 for the work could be sought from a reliable Gurnard roofing contractor.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Gurnard properties at risk, and does a home surveyor consider any flood damage?

Flooding in Gurnard can cause severe damage to both contents and property. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage starts, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The property surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
