About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Moorends

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Moorends and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Moorends property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Moorends property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Moorends. Is there any Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of??

Brick-walled homes in Moorends can suffer from both minor and serious issues, such as spalling. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. M G L Building Services at 26 Riley Road, Tilehurst, Reading, RG30 4UX on 0118-942 8178.

Moorends home purchasers may need to consider that range of courses arrangements and colours have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor go into detail on the state of repair of the gas heaters?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation as part of the survey, as well as gas associated installations, for instance the possibility of asbestos. External fittings or housings won't however be taken off. Gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Are there any concerns I should look into when purchasing a converted house in Moorends near a conservation area?

Your surveyor must have relevant knowledge of local considerations and any bearing may have on the building. Prices is typically significantly higher which is down to them being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising
