RICS Homebuyers survey report on a Birmingham 1981 semi detached house
As the house was of timber framed construction our surveyors thus took particular care to look for evidence of dampness that might decay the timber frame. Ponding of a flat roof suggested further investigation was required as the deck might not be properly constructed. Such ponding can encourage condensation in the roof void which encourages decay or beetles.

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.
