Sara Williams
Homebuyer - WIRRAL

My mortgage valuation report
advised that I should obtain a
Structural Report to comment on
the causes of cracking at the rear of my new home. Kriss Cringle
Associates were able to carry out
an inspection virtually straight
away and provide a report and
cost estimates that put my mind at
rest and enabled me to re-
negotiate with the vendor.

House Buying / Selling
From 2007 the
law regarding house buying / selling will change dramatically.

From this date anyone wishing to sell their home must put together a Home
Information Pack for potential home
buyers. The Pack will bring together all of
the key information needed at the start of
the home buying and selling process and
will include a report called a 'Home Condition Report' or HCR.

The content of HCR will similar to that of
the current RICS Home Buyers Report
with a few additions such as condition
ratings and thermal performance criteria.
Although, as far as we are aware the HC
reports will not give any detailed
recommendations regarding structural
matters and independent structural reports
will still be called for.

Roof re-covering
The Building
Regulations 1992 & 2004 Part A Structure
has been updated.

It has been a legal requirement since 1992 to submit a Building Regulations application
when you recover the roof to your
property. This application should be
accompanied by a structural inspection
report which confirms the suitability of the
existing structure, or provides full details
and calculations of any proposals for strengthening or otherwise upgrading of the roof structure.

The updated information within the Approved document amends the weight classification for re-covering works.
