About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Henleaze

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Henleaze and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Henleaze property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Henleaze property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Henleaze house what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Bricks that are too close to the soil level without proper damp-proofing is an example.

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Henleaze. What aspects of the loft will be looked into for the survey?

Houses in Henleaze that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing woes, like wet rot. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ceiling joists, ought to be checked. The surveyors in Henleaze could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Henleaze roofing contractor.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a house proximate to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous rubbish disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health issues such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Henleaze will note any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Bristol Local Authority and advise you .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Henleaze. What input does a property surveyor in Henleaze give?

Your surveyor will mention these, with directions for remedy. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall.
