Home Buyers Survey in Henbury

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Henbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Henbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Henbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial refuse. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Henbury will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Bristol Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Henbury home with a loft conversion. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can often hide problems like bad drainage. From wind braces to trusses, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Henbury, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in Henbury can provide one.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I get the full structural survey if purchasing a doer-upper regency house near Henbury as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly called a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer available has actually been reclassified by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the proper name is actually now the RICS Building Survey. When looking into purchasing an altered Henbury house like a property in poor condition house, this is now the best survey. A Building Survey will detail notable details about the property's construction as well as any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Henbury that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors frequently show issues e.g. horizontal visible cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when dampness gets in beneath DPCs that causes the render detaching. Resolving problems may be difficult and costly as craftsmen are getting harder to find.
