External
3
Pipework to the emergency discharge pipe from the unvented cylinder is incomplete and must be attended to.
4
A broken rainwater downpipe was observed to the left hand side front elevation. Wastewater connections to the left hand side soil stack are defective. There is also a leaking rainwater downpipe joint to the front right corner.
5
The missing terminal to the vent from the rear bedroom ensuite should be replaced
6
Eaves protectors to be fitted into the gutters as the underfelt has rotted back from the eaves https://www.ribaproductselector.com/Product.aspx?ci=7504&pr=AlumascTimloc-EavesProtector
7
Eaves ventilators are required, recommed the push in circular type which can be retro fitted insitu at 160mm centres https://www.ribaproductselector.com/Docs/4/07504/external/COL188962.pdf
8
There is a risk that the original timber fascia, barge and soffits boarding may be in poor condition behind the plastic coverings. This should be assessed when eaves protectors and ventilators are installed.
9
The gutters and fascia require clearing and cleaning
10
The gap into the roof void under the lead flashing, over the front left window requires attention to prevent the entry of birds or squirrels.
11
The front and external doors and some windows are in need of easing and the front and side door handle are loose.
12
The company used to adjust the windows should also check the double glazing units are in good order 
13
Maintenance of the decorative timberwork is overdue
14
15
Internal
16
A plumbing and heating engineers report should be obtained on the sufficiency of corrosion inhibitor to the water in the radiators and on the condition of the unvented cylinder and fittings. (NB. A Magnetic type filter only protects the boiler).
17
Replacement boiler required, recommend a condensing system boiler. This removes the need for a tank in the loft.
18
Fixing of the support timbers to the central heating expansion tank (unless the boiler is to be replaced with a system boiler).
19
Fix insulation to the overflow pipe from the tank in the loft is required (unless the boiler is to be replaced with a system boiler).
20
Replace or upgrade loft hatch and fit loft ladder
21
An electrical safety inspection report to be obtained
22
The poorly installed extractor fan ducts must be attended to as they will be restricting the airflow. Dips in the run of the duct should be avoided as moisture from condensation can collect, there should be at least a slight fall back towards the bathroom.
23
Check the inset ceiling lamps to the first floor ceilings are fire rated and that according to the manufacturer's instructions, or an electrician, it is safe to insulate over them without or even with fire hoods. https://www.screwfix.com/c/electrical-lighting/downlight-fire-hood/cat840954
24
Fit 'loft legs' to provide a crawl way and storage area without crushing the insulation. https://www.wickes.co.uk/Loftleg-Raised-Floor-Loft-Legs---175mm-Pack-of-12/p/100412
25
Relay the disturbed insulation
26
Relay the disturbed insulation and increase all to 300mm without obstructing ventilation from the eaves, sandwiching electrical wires within the insulation or covering the inset lamps if they must not be covered.
27
Main bathroom
28
Professionally reseal around bath to tiles to reduce risk of leaking (see also below comment on bath)
29
Bath - slight damage to the inside on the bottom below the overhead shower position, repair or replace.
30
Shower - screen requires a new seal or replacing. The shower hose requires replacement
31
A hole in the tiles was noted under the radiator in the main bathroom and this will require filling in
32
Service valves should be fitted to the taps, in particular to the basins to control excessive flow which can cause splashing.
33
The fitting of a door stop should be considered to the main bathroom door.
34
Redecorating after sanding down areas of poor plasterwork, filling holes and thermal cracks, punch and fill over the visible plasterboard nail heads
35
The slight settlement cracks noted to the rear right corner of the garage and over the side door should be filled with flexible filler and monitored.
36
Some kitchen cupboard doors/draws require slight adjustment. There is slight damage to the bottom of the sink, a specialist repair may be possible. The oven needs deep cleaning
37
The door into the kitchen from the dining area was held open with a wedge, this door may need rehanging.
38
Some of the joints to the decorative wood flooring were observed to have opened up slightly.  Advice should be sought from a specialist on the maintenance of such. A cover strip next to the rear doors requires attention.
39
Some doors require easing and adjustment. A lock may be required to the main bathroom door. Some making good is required to the bottom of the door frame to the front door, internally.
40
A number of floor boards were noted to be slightly loose to the first floor, these should be fixed prior to carpeting. Care must be taken as there may be pipes or cable below the loose boards.
41
Some repointing required above the garage door and mastic sealing to the side of the garage door. The garage door sticks at the bottom left and does not properly catch.
42
Repairs to the side gate and numerous fencing posts and panels are required along with a replacement shed/summerhouse.
43
Provide insulation for the the outside tap in winter.
44
45
Items requiring attention in the medium term (within three years).

48
Removal or treatment of moss on the roof
49
Evidence of salt staining to the brickwork was noticed. It may be possible to remove this with special cleaning fluids.
