About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Malvern

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Malvern and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Malvern property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Malvern property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of vermin in the closet. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Property purchasers in Malvern should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the roofing be something to worry about?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Houses across Malvern can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer problems like mould. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
