Home Buyers Survey in Long Eaton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Long Eaton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Long Eaton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Long Eaton property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that the had been a problem with amateur repairs. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

This often causes anxiety for Long Eaton buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. A large number of properties could unfortunately be experiencing roofing problems. From concrete tiles to collar beams, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Long Eaton, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Long Eaton surveyors will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) 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 Long Eaton roofing specialist can provide one. Call Long Eaton Asphalt of 102 Wellington St, Long Eaton, Nottingham, NG10 4NG on 0115-973 5527 for details.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems for example gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Long Eaton RICS surveyors will find structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Erewash Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Portland stone walls. Are there specific factors to consider?

Purchasers in Long Eaton should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects such as stone faces affect many stone-walled buildings. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Long Eaton are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I am interested to move into, the agent said that there is old wiring - does a Long Eaton survey report on electrical defects?

During a Building Survey in Long Eaton the surveyor should usually comment on the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state. This should include a by sight check of any revealed areas of the wiring and other issues like checking that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Long Eaton .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate a PIR be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
