Faults found after home condition surveys


Last month we published a post showing some examples of property problems that you might miss without a Home Condition Survey. Here are some further examples of issues we have found after carrying out Home Condition Surveys that could potentially cause more problems in the future and cost you a lot of money.


Settlement crack


Electrics burnt & woodworm in supports


Floor rotting away


A thatched roof with a light bulb trying to set light to it.


Gas Boiler burning so badly it had to be changed


Tiles coming off roof at rear of dormer window that could not be seen from ground.


No insulation to main cold water storage tank


Fully glazed door not safety glass.


UPVC windows with screw fixings rusting !!


Oil tank leaking in cupboard rear of garage


Asbestos roof crumbling


No gutter to rear and soil level high so water soaking into garage.


Mushrooms growing on floor due to water pipes leaking under making large area wet.


Back gutter leaking and side of wasp nest

Very happy with the Home Buyers Report carried out by Alan. We received the 119 page report and photos later the same day. Alan is very professional and is happily available to answer any questions you may have. We have just exchanged contracts and looking forward to moving in soon. We highly recommend Alan and wouldn’t use anyone else!

Really professional and efficient. We chose to employ Alan for our building survey and we were impressed with the speed and quality of his report. The advice given was invaluable to support the final decision and our renovation plans. Thanks for all your help Alan!

Alan carried out a level 3 homebuyers survey on a house we had an offer accepted on. It was very easy to get hold of him and he responded quickly to our emails. The report was very detailed and came very quickly (the same day when the survey was done). As FTB we had a lot of questions and Alan was very helpful answering our questions and explaining the details. Highly recommend!

We used Alan for a home buyers survey "twice" !!! as our first purchase fell through at the last minute, nothing was too much trouble, communication before and after and an explanation of the very comprehensive report was superb. Would thoroughly recommend using Alan
Alan Rance Surveyors carried a full Building Survey on our prospective purchase and we are very pleased with the depth of the report and the level of service provided.
