HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ormesby and which would be the cheapest?

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that loose slates had been a concern. What advice would the building surveyor give in their report?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Ormesbywho know how costly roofing work can be. Many properties can still be subject to damage to the roof, including. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) 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. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor can provide one.
