        Detailed & Comprehensive Homebuyer Surveys in Birmingham


        Our homebuyer surveys provide extensive external and internal assessments along with a  complete understanding of a properties condition at that point in time, and ascertain the predicted future deterioration and structural issues.

        All Homebuyer Survey reports provide vital information, for existing or potential owners to understand the level of expenditure required to maintain, or correct a property.

        In addition, the Homebuyer Survey and report allows the client to make structured plans for the required works, based on timescales and predicted expenditure.

        In-depth Homebuyer Surveys in Birmingham are undertaken on all buildings including:

        • Buildings that are being purchased
        • All Historic & Listed buildings surveyed
        • Buildings of all ages
        • Buildings currently being developed, or renovated
        • Peace of mind surveys for current owners

        We provide a report that allows you to get a much clearer understanding of the condition of the property.

        • Detailed assessment of the overall condition.
        • All defects will be detailed.
        • Structural issues will be explained.
        • Any Damp or Condensation related issues will be addressed (if agreed as part of the survey), or an outline of the Damp or Condensation related. issues will be provided.
        • Timber deterioration will be reported (For properties with significant deterioration, a separate detailed Timber survey maybe required).
        • We will report on any legal issues that maybe relevant to the property or proposed works.
        • We can include energy efficiency and environmental issues.

        We also undertake partial surveys in Birmingham, known as, “Areas Of Concern Surveys”. The areas required will be agreed at the enquiry stage.

        Our Surveys assess the following issues, our detailed reports will explain the issues and provide the supporting evidence:

        Properties built close to Digbeth Branch Canal, Birmingham Canal Old Line and the Grand Union Canal, as well as rivers such as the River Rea are often susceptible to flood, mould and condensation due their close proximity to the water

        Throughout history, many properties had fallen victim to the floods and subsequently some of the water damage has had a lasting affect.

        What does a Homebuyer Survey in Birmingham cover?

        A surveyor will first undertake an external survey in order to gain a full understanding of the property.

        Thereafter, the surveyor will include the following during his assessment, 

        EXTERNALLY 

        • An Assessment of any chimney stacks (if present) for defects and deterioration
        • An assessment of the roof and guttering for defects and deterioration
        • An assessment of the elevations, taking into account deterioration to any render, brickwork or stonework and the mortar joints.
        • Inspection of any windows and doors
        • The surveyor will also take into account the topography (land gradients) of the property  along with the ground levels.
        • If terraced or attached, the surveyor will also assess any adjoining properties, in order to ascertain if any adjacent deterioration or defects are affecting the main property.

        INTERALLY

        • A full visual assessment of every room (or the rooms requested), in order to ascertain the extent of the issues being experienced. The Surveyor will ascertain if anything such as electrics, ventilation, extraction, fire protection etc. does not meet the current Building Regulations standards.
        • If required the Surveyor will obtain moisture levels, in order to ascertain if damp is a contributing factor of any issues assessed.
        • If the survey is being completed for a Tenant or Landlord, the Section 11 Landlord & Tenant Act will be taken into consideration.
        • If the survey is being undertaken for a homeowner, and is to report on defects with a new property, the NHBC (National House Build Council) build standard requirements will be considered.

        Future plans for Birmingham City

        Smithfield

        One of the largest projects ever undertaken in the city centre, the council and Lendlease this year finalised a £1.9 billion scheme which will include 3,000 houses, a new home for the historic Bull Ring Markets, shops, a hotel and a new public square.

        Digbeth Development

        One of the most ambitious projects being undertaken over the next 15 years, the council recently gave outline permission for a vast new development in Digbeth that would leave the area unrecognisable to most, with more than 59 buildings set to be demolished.

        Alexander Stadium / Perry Barr development

        While the ‘Athletes Village’ will no longer be used to house athletes for next summer’s Commonwealth Games, £500 million is still set to be poured into the area over the coming years creating as many as 5,000 new homes.

        100 Broad Street

        Set to become the city’s tallest building when finally complete, developers of 100 Broad Street say it will become ‘the pinnacle high rise in the emerging Broad Street cluster of tall buildings.’

        Stratford Road Mosque

        Images have shown plans for a new seven-storey mosque at the junction of Highgate Road and Stratford Road, intended to accommodate up to 2,500 worshippers.
