About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Sea Mills

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sea Mills and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Sea Mills property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that loose slates had been a concern. What does a Sea Mills house surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Sea Mills home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties can still be subject to issues with the roof. From the slates to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

The expense of felting a flat roof, 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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor in Sea Mills for the job itself.

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to buy in Sea Mills, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the RICS surveyor search for water damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways can cause flooding. Both purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding begins. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
