About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Rocester

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Rocester and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rocester property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Rocester property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Rocester Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Rocester properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey search for indications of flooding, or if the garden have been affected?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Times). Both house buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Rocester home enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The house surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the Rocester home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a surveyor in Rocester give for a 30s residence with Flemish bond walls?

Brick structures in Rocester will show signs of a number of issues. This could be anything from signs of movement to weathering. These issues will be mentioned in the report and suggest potential remedies. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Peters Simon may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01244 370924 or 6 Wavertree Rd, Chester, CH1 5AE.

Rocester home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety are used in properties built throughout the ages. One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would be advised to consider when planning to buy a house in Rocester near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Rocester need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have with the property and its value. The price of property is usually enhanced because of conservation areas retaining their original character. However many conservation areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors will advise you if the planned purchase looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unconsented extensions to the building should be advised, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of vermin in the living room - Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. For example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides.
