HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Alperton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Alperton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Alperton property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Alperton properties at risk, and does a house surveyor investigate flooding damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and owning a property in Alperton in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a converted barn with Beer stone walls. What factors should we be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Beer Limestone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built property in Alperton can vary, erosion of pointing joints being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
