About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Lymm

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Lymm and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Lymm property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Lymm property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in a house we used to own, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the roofing will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

This is often asked by buyers in Lymm who know that homes could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof. From fascias to valley gutters, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Lymm, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Lymm will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Baker John of 15 Moseley Av, Warrington, WA4 1NX on 01925 634559 to request an estimate.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a flat proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: industrial refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include methane gas generation .

Lymm surveyors will note structural problems resulting from the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Warrington Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
