About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Mexborough

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Mexborough and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Mexborough property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Mexborough property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Mexborough. Can a property surveyor check for water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Mexborough and nationwide, is a serious concern for homeowners, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

The alert level for the River Dearne and its tributaries from Denby Dale to Mexborough, near to Mexborough of 'No warnings', was recently set by the Environment Agency at 12:25 on 28/11/12.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Mexborough, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the attic be an issue?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property can still be subject to roofing problems. From ceiling joists to slates, every element of the roof should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as re-covering asphalt) 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. A local roofing specialist with positive reviews can provide a quote. Call Cortac Ltd of 109 Clayfield View, Mexborough, S64 0HS on 01709 586635 to request a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to move the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. They will report on possible asbestos and should offer advice.
