Park Home / Leisure Lodge                Survey Report

 

LOCATION

 

We measure distance to boundaries and neighbouring homes

 

BS3632

 

This is the manufacturing standard to which residential mobile
and park homes are built; this has altered over the years and is
changed every few years. We therefore identify the home and
assess whether the home was manufactured to these standards.

 

UNDER THE HOME

BASE

 

We inspect and check the type of base on which the home is
sited. We check for cracks, subsidence and drainage issues.

 

 

SITING

 

The type, position, number and condition of the supports are
inspected.

 

 

CHASSIS

 

The chassis is constructed by welded channel and angle section
steel. We inspect the chassis for corrosion, distortion and its load
bearing qualities.

 

FLOOR BEARERS

 

The floor bearers are the timbers used to connect the steel work
chassis to the timber structure of the home. These are similar to
the floor joists found in a traditionally built bricks and mortar
homes. These are checked for condition.

 

Coach bolts are generally used to secure the timber floor bearers
to the steel work chassis. These are inspected for condition.

 

INSULATION

 

The underside of the floor is insulated we inspect its condition
and identify the type of insulation used.

 

PIPE WORK

 

All the pipe work under the home is inspected for leaks, drainage
and insulation.

 

EXTERIOR SKIRTING

 

The underside of the home is generally enclosed. The type and
condition of the skirting is inspected.

EXTERNAL

WALLS

 

The exterior walls of the home are inspected for type, condition
and materials used.

 

WINDOWS AND DOORS

 

The doors and windows are inspected to see if they comply with
fire regulations, operation and assess whether the frames are the
recommended Odd Leg or Bricks and mortar frames called Even
Leg.

 

ROOF

 

The roof is inspected (we actually climb onto the roof) to identify
the type and its overall condition.

 

The barge, fascia and soffit boards are also inspected

 

PORCHES

 

If the home has had a porch fitted it is inspected to assess what
materials it has been built with and whether the porch complies
with general legislation.

 

EXTENSION

 

An extension may have been added to the home by previous
owners. Its condition and whether it contravenes the site licence
and definition of a park home is calculated

 

INTERIOR

 

WALLS

 

All walls are inspected to assess type and materials used.

 

Damp readings and thermal bridges are recorded

 

CEILINGS

 

All ceilings are inspected a long with damp meter tests.

 

FLOORS

 

All floors are inspected for condition and materials used.
