Home Buyers Survey in Northwich

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Northwich and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Northwich property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Northwich property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this house is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report look for possible water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Northwich and nationwide, is a serious concern for residents, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Northwich enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Northwich is at risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with bowing, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a property surveyor in Northwich keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to fascias. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor can provide one. Speak to J & T of 119 Carlton Rd, Northwich, CW9 5PG on 01606 49571 for details.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider rainwater goods, and does our RICS surveyor in Northwich mention it?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rain has on homes is ignored by house purchasers. As an example, water pooling below gutters can often mean that the downspouts are at risk, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Northwich or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
