Ilkeston Surveyors RICS Homebuyers Survey Report on an Edwardian Terrace

On this Ilkeston Homebuyers Survey we encountered severe structural movement causing a considerable slope on the landing floor. The movement also showed up in the fracturing and dropping of brickwork above window openings. The original slate roof had been recovered with much heavier concrete tiles but there had been no attempt to upgrade the roof structure making it vulnerable to failue in the event of heavy snow. Poor gutter arrangements put the property at risk of water penetration as it has solid walls which will make it cold and prone to condensation. 


Homebuyers Surveys and Reports - Ilkeston Awsworth Cossall Trowell Chartered Surveyors 

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.


Not inspected.


The surveyor also advises and matters that your legal advisers should investigate and imminent risks to the property or people.
