Home Buyers Survey in Morley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Morley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Morley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Morley property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rain have on a house? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the impact wet conditions can have on a structure is overlooked by home buyers. If you have only visited the property in the Summer, issues may have been hidden. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include "gushing" gutters, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to repair fairly cheaply.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in a house we used to own, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the loft will be reported on?

This is a common concern for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can still be subject to damage to the roof. From purlins to collar beams, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Morley, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, 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. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor in Morley a quote for any suggested work.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Morley, what suggestions can you make for property built with brick? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed residential property in Morley feature several advantages, but they can also be affected by a number of issues. The surveyor would usually include these and suggest potential remedies. One serious matter is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. A local builder should be able to assist. Call JS, 14 Grimshaw Pl, Preston, PR1 3BW on 07730 603340 for a quote for repair work.

Morley home purchasers may need to consider that a number of approaches and materials have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
