Stafford RICS Chartered Surveyors Homebuyers Survey Report on a 1980 terrace house
Our Stafford RICS Surveyors found a collapsed wall, unusual easement, vulnerable gas pipe, roof void wet rot, single glazed cold windows and a substandard roof structure. The property has single glazed timber windows and that are likely to be subject to condensation and decay. Pots and pans in the roof suggest that the metalwork at the right of the roof is leaking.
The Homebuyers survey report noted damp marks, a sloping floor, inefficient old boiler, an unsatisfactory roof structure and condensation mould.
Prepared in an easy to read jargon free standard format designed by the RICS the Homebuyer report aims to help you:
make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property;
make an informed decision on what is a reasonable price to pay for the property;
take account of any repairs or replacements the property needs
consider what further advice you should take before exchanging contracts;
and determine how much to insure the property for
To help describe the condition of the home, the surveyor gives condition ratings to the main parts (or 'elements') of the building, garage, and some parts outside.
Defects which are serious and/or need to be repaired, replaced or investigated urgently.
Defects that need repairing or replacing but are not considered to be either serious or urgent. The property must be maintained in the normal way.
No repair is currently needed. The property must be maintained in the normal way.
The surveyor also advises and matters that your legal advisers should investigate and imminent risks to the property or people.
