Home Buyers Survey in Sheldon

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Sheldon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sheldon property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Sheldon property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Which major matters should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Purchasers in Sheldon should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Sheldon, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the Sheldon building surveyor look into during the survey?

This is a common concern for Sheldon homebuyers. Many residential properties may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. From wind braces to dormers, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Sheldon, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Sheldon roofing specialist with accreditation can provide a quote. Speak to McEvoy E T of 109 Horse Shoes La, Birmingham, B26 3HS on 0121-742 5402 for an estimate.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I am interested to acquire it looked like there is old wiring - does a the Sheldon surveyor report on electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Sheldon the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as areas e.g. confirming the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey in Sheldon. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Sheldon .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Sheldon. Is there any London brick upkeep suggestions we should be aware of?? Is age a factor?

Brick-built residences do benefit from many advantages, but they will also indicate numerous defects, such as cracks. The surveyor in Sheldon will mention these. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Contact Homer J E for a repairs estimate at 01244 810006 or 70 Sealand Rd, Sealand, Deeside, CH5 2RJ.

Buyers in Sheldon should consider that a number of popular courses and methods have been used for centuries. As an example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Sheldon surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Sheldon? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the effect which rain has on houses is often overlooked. One indication that downspouts are worth a closer look is spalling masonry, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
